Im trying to create a new font from the system font in C#(Mono).

 System.Drawing.Font myfont=System.Drawing.SystemFonts.DefaultFont 
The code works properly in Windows but when it comes to running in Mac i get
an argument exception-The Requested font family Could not be found

I thought that the default font may be missing,So i tried with Helvtica.That
is installed On Mac by default

 System.Drawing.Font myfont=new System.Drawing.Font("Helvetica",10f);

Still the same exception
