It's even easier than that -- Font Book (included on your Mac) will do this for ya. It's in the Applications folder.

Thanks, cant see if these do what I am after, I see you can select a font and preview it in given text but the viewer I used before lets me type in a sentence and then scroll showing that sentence in list in all my typefaces!

How about you actually try them out? Almost all of them give you the option to do so.

Because the idea of this forum is that someone can confirm this and not leave you to try hit and miss and see what works or doesn't, perhaps in this case its easier to do that!
