Default paragraph font not found in character catalog

Hi all,

I'm wondering if there's a way to get the default paragraph font as a character format via ExtendScript. I currently have a script that records all the character formats in the active doc.

var arr = new Array;

var tag = active.FirstCharFmtInDoc;

var tagname = tag.Name;

var count = 0;

while (tag.ObjectValid()) {

     arr[count] = tagname;

     tag = tag.NextCharFmtInDoc;

     tagname = tag.Name;

     count++;

}

return arr;

In FrameMaker, this list looks like:

Default Font

Emphasis

EquationVariables

Hypertext

But when iterating through the character formats in the script, it omits the default font. Any ideas on how to stop this omission or why it occurs?

The "Default Font" tag is actually not in the stored Catalog of a document. It's just a hardwired reset that strips off all applied character formats and/or tags.
