Searching by Font name (with trigger word "font") will display the preview of the font in a text + image template.

And perhaps other information about the font (ie. Designer, Foundry, Related Fonts).

Not sure if we could pull it from fonts.com API. If anyone else knows of other more comprehensive font databases, please do share.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but FontSquirrel is only for free fonts?

I guess it'll be better to use a database for as wide a universe as possible so that any search will yield results (whether free or paid).

Also just realised that Fonts.com doesn't seem to have fixed-width fonts.

Good to have an API where we can find commonly-used fontfaces like Helvetica, Monaco etc.
