set font and color problem

Dear All,
how can I set more color and font for my plot, as I know matplotlib just
supporte 8 color strings and five fonts.
Is there any way to extend it for all color and font from system ?
has every one any useful code about that?
Thanks

For the colors, I just use :

textobj.set_color( #FF0000 )
textobj.set_alpha( 0.5 )

For the fonts, I never noticed there were a limit :

textobj.set_fontname( "DejaVu Sans" )

I would be interested in a way to check if the selected font exists on
the system or not, because currently no exception is raised.

Hope it helps.

Just to point out -- from this you have access to ~16 million colors.

For the fonts, I never noticed there were a limit :

textobj.set_fontname( "DejaVu Sans" )

This *should* work -- matplotlib should be able to use any font on your system. If not, that's a bug, so please let us know. To help us diagnose the problem, please look here:
