fonts

Recommended Posts

i''m trying to display two strings using different typefaces, but what i''m doing now seems to overload and only display one string... i''ve had a thought about putting the fonts into the same list, but not sure if that''d work practically...haven''t really tried. any helpful directions appreciated, i''m quite new to fonts in opengl... a snippet
  
GLuint font_heading_base;
GLuint font_text_base;

void WriteText(char* text, int type)
{
	if(text==NULL) return;

	if(type==FN_HEADER)
	{
		glPushAttrib(GL_LIST_BIT);
		glListBase(font_heading_base);
		glCallLists(strlen(text), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,text);
		glPopAttrib();
	}
	else if(type==FN_TEXT)
	{
		glPushAttrib(GL_LIST_BIT);
		glListBase(font_text_base);
		glCallLists(strlen(text), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE,text);
		glPopAttrib();
	}
}
  
i guess the if statement and stuff therein is the big bong here...HELP?
