How do I find out what fonts are used in a document/picture?

Can anyone tell me the name of the font encoded in the following page

  • http://www.sanskritweb.net/yajurveda/yv-ta.pdf

  • Next, how can I use this font using the "Polyglossia" package.

  • What are the different Sanskrit font's available at "Polyglossia" package. I only know of Nakula and Sahadeva. Can the default font (that is the output font after processing with the devnag pre-processor) of the devanagari package be brought as the output while using the polyglossia package.

  • I believe that the PDF file should ahve the font info, but if not, you can try: WhatTheFont – Peter Grill Jan 10 '12 at 5:26
  • To answer the third question, see the following discussion on the XeTeX mailing list: Devanagari fonts – Alan Munn Jan 10 '12 at 5:34
  • You keep referring to the polyglossia package as loading or otherwise managing fonts. Being admittedly a bit pedantic about this, it's actually the fontspec package that performs these jobs. – Mico Jan 10 '12 at 6:26

  • Do you were those font's can be found. I searched in google, but couldn't locate it. Moreover any idea of how one uses the fonts in XeLaTeX – chandrasekhar Jan 10 '12 at 7:07
  • Sorry, have not worked much with different fonts. Did Alan Munn's comment above provide the answer? – Peter Grill Jan 10 '12 at 20:07
  • Sorry nothing there is nothing on that link – chandrasekhar Jan 11 '12 at 5:05
  • @AlanMunn: Seems that the link you pointed to does not have much info on the matter. – Peter Grill Jan 11 '12 at 5:35
