Topaz font.. code for grabbing it from the OS

Just wondering if anyone has the code needed to pinch the topaz font from the amiga OS? I seem to remember a lot of the old A500 boot blocks doing this for boot menus and such. Also wondering if the code to rip it from the A500 would also work on the A1200?

OpenFont() also works.

From a bootblock of mine:
	lea FontDef(PC),a0
	lea FontName(PC),a1
	move.l a1,(a0)			;PC-relative, ya know!
	jsr -72(a6)			;openFont(topaz.font)
	move.l d0,a1
	move.l $22(a1),a2		;fontaddr
	jsr -78(a6)			;close font
;          ...
FontDef:dc.l 0
	dc.w 8,0
FontName:dc.b "topaz.font",0
