Here's an entry from a working XEP font configuration file:

    <!-- Japanese Gothic font (serif) -->
    <font name="HGGothicB"
         <alias name="Gothic"/>

In this case, the font is located relative to the location of the font
configuration file (I ship the fonts and the configuration file together
as part of a cross-platform production support package).

If you're just working off one machine you would normally use an
absolute path the font file, e.g. "C:\windows\fonts\myfont.ttf"
