Random fonts?

Alright. I'm generating Test Data for this OCR Thing, I have a program that writes random numbers and characters to a specified number of images in a sequential order. I'd like to add a bit more to it, anyone know how I can make something do Random Fonts?

sure just create a list of the fonts you want to choose from in an array.
{Times New Roman, Blah, Font3, blah, blah....., blah};

item.Font = Random(ArrayofFonts);
where Random returns the random font from the array.

I think you can load all system fonts into array this way
private void button1_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
{
    string[] ArrFont;
    InstalledFontCollection ifc = new InstalledFontCollection();
    FontFamily[] ffs = ifc.Families;
    //Font f;
    foreach(FontFamily ff in ffs)
    {
       ArrFont[ff.ToString()];
    }
}
