How can determine what fonts a framemaker template uses?

Is there a way for me to, preferably programmatically (via script, or looking at MIF versions) determine what Framemaker templates use a specific font?  For instance, given a directory full of templates, is there a way to query them as a group to determine which reports use, say, Futura Book?  I could do it template by template if necessary.  Non-programmatic responses welcome too :-).

Thanks in advance.

Don't know about how to access the information elegantly, but a .mif file contains <FontCatalog> and <PgfCatalog> sections with entries for each style in the document. I _believe_ that the .book file (saved out as .mif) _may_ contain all the definitions from the component .fm files, including:

<FPlatformName `W.Arial.R.400'>

<FFamily `Arial'>

There's no guarantee, though, that a style defined in the catalogue is applied to any of the document content; you'd need to clean the styles catalogues first.
