A monospace font is a font designed for text display where the the characters form a regular grid. For Western languages this would mean that the advance width of all characters are the same, but this categorization also includes Asian fonts which include double-width characters: characters that occupy two grid cells.
The best way to find out the grid-cell size is to call Pango::FontMetrics#approximate_digit_width, since the results of Pango::FontMetrics#approximate_char_width may be affected by double-width characters.
- Returns: true if the family is monospace.
Gets the different font faces that make up family. The faces in a family share a common design, but differ in slant, weight, width and other aspects.
- Returns: an Array of Pango::FontFace objects.
