Thanks for that code. I am still new to wx and guis via Python.
The area that actually displays the font - is that a 'control' or something
I can directly work with? Maybe it can be made longer, have a scroll-bar
and show multiple lines of differing fonts - something like that?

Any QT suggestions?
