Both belong to the Courier family, right?  So which one is found first
is entirely implementation-dependent.

When we ask for a family, we are saying that we will accept _any_
member of that family.  If we are unwilling to accept some of its
members, we should request a specific font (or maybe specify more than
just a family, but I'm not aware of any such additional specs;
foundry, perhaps?).
