Unless I've misunderstood, simply repeat the process for the second font, which uses a different display list, and spit out the text using code such as:

glListBase (2nd_Font_DL);// Set Display List base
glCallLists ((GLsizei) Text.GetLength(), GL_UNSIGNED_BYTE, (const GLvoid *) Text); // Convert string to graphics
