Chapter 16 Exercise 14, Introduction to Java Programming, Tenth Edition Y. Daniel LiangY.

16.14 (Select a font)
Write a program that can dynamically change the font of a
text in a lbl displayed on a stack pane. The text can be
displayed in bold and italic at the same time. You can select
the font name or font size from combo boxes, as shown in Figure
16.42a. The available font names can be obtained using Font.getFamilies().
The combo box for the font size is initialized with numbers from 1 to 100.
