Is there a font collection image somewhere for the FG fonts?

I found the definition files but wondered if there was some example image to simplify choosing font.

those are texture fonts, you can directly use them and see what they look like - for example by using the hud or via the canvas (nasal console).
Depending on your OS, there are also various free tools to open/edit those files.
