According to the org.jfree.chart.renderer.AbstractRenderer, a java.awt.Font object - which can be constructed with a font name, a font style (like bold, italic, underline etc.) and a font size.

Still having trouble getting syntax right. Can you help with the correct way to construct the Font?

I'm not familiar with Font.getFont, but the parameters look about right. I'd use a constructor instead: new Font("TimesRoman", Font.PLAIN, 8)

You can call Font.getAllFonts to get a list of all fonts and their correct spellings.
