Font questions, default stuff vs installed...


Ok, I know that there's fonts that can be installed, such as the 75dpi package, the 100dpi package, etc.

I plan to eventually try to play with True Type Fonts...

But, what I want to know is, is there a set of built in or default fonts with the X-Windows system?

Because I know the whole -adobe-r-*-*-17- etc etc format

But occasionally I see references to fonts called simply "fixed" or "7x13" or "10x20" Is there a complete list of these "short named" fonts (for lack of a better term)

Are these independent of the various font packages?
