Macbook Pro 10.6.6

I'm looking for a font manager that will scan my hdd for all fonts, installed and not installed, and let me categorize them into virtual groups or use tags so that I can easily find the fonts I have tagged/grouped as bold or angled or holiday or with a motion effect etc. Font Book, which comes w/ the mac os, only lets me group fonts that are installed.

I found a good review of mac fonts, including reviews of font managers. There are trial versions of all but one. None of them sound like they will function to classify fonts [by my criteria] stored on the hdd, but not installed.

Also found an article on font management tools that included programs that will let you view uninstalled fonts - but Font Book does that.
