Maybe in the latex graphics companion?
Anyway, for anything non standard, anyone uses his own system...

well, in latex's opinion, serif, sans & tt are different families. Of
course, if your family name is bhvt, you're going toi have troubles
with \latinfamily... Either (as for lucida sans that first was a
variant of lc, but eventually became a family of its own) you burn one
more typeface.map slot, or you use lower level fontinst commands

\setint{monowidth} of course, sorry.
