Only the font *name*, of course. The effect of including the
font name in the "fonts" line of the DESC file is to enable
font-position numbering for that font. It has no other purpose
as far as I know, and if it is irrelevant for you then I suppose
it does no harm to leave it out. However, doing so has no adverse
effects, and if you ever should need position numbering then it
is available if you have already added it. So why not?
