doc.FontSettings = fontSettings;

TableSubstitutionRule tableSubstitutionRule = fontSettings.SubstitutionSettings.TableSubstitution;
tableSubstitutionRule.LoadWindowsSettings();

// In Windows, the default substitute for the "Times New Roman CE" font is "Times New Roman".
Assert.AreEqual(new[] {"Times New Roman"},
    tableSubstitutionRule.GetSubstitutes("Times New Roman CE").ToArray());

// We can save the table in the form of an XML document.
tableSubstitutionRule.Save(ArtifactsDir + "FontSettings.TableSubstitutionRule.Windows.xml");

// Linux has its own substitution table.
// There are multiple substitute fonts for "Times New Roman CE".
// If the first substitute, "FreeSerif" is also unavailable,
// this rule will cycle through the others in the array until it finds an available one.
tableSubstitutionRule.LoadLinuxSettings();
Assert.AreEqual(new[] {"FreeSerif", "Liberation Serif", "DejaVu Serif"},
    tableSubstitutionRule.GetSubstitutes("Times New Roman CE").ToArray());
