public void Clone_Example(PaintEventArgs e)
{
    // Create a Font object.
    Font myFont = new Font("Arial", 16);

    // Create a copy of myFont.
    Font cloneFont = (Font)myFont.Clone();

    // Use cloneFont to draw text to the screen.
    e.Graphics.DrawString("This is a cloned font", cloneFont,
        Brushes.Black, 0, 0);
