I think that I forgot to mention before is that... could it be that a
font family has the words "bold" or "italic" within his name? If it
could be, in some circunstances will be impossible to know if the user
has selected bold or italic through the FontSelection just using the
FontName property. For example, if there's a font named "Rome Italic" or
"Alps Bold" we may have additional problems.

So I still wonder if there's no other way to get that data from
