Just a note that the seven MS fonts in the default font list (Arial, Comic Sans, Georgia, Impact, Tahoma, Trebuchet, Verdana) will not display on a Mac or other system that doesn’t have them installed. (Macs with Office should have them, but lots of people don’t have Office.) They are replaced by the default sans font (even Georgia, a serif, oddly):
(I have Impact installed on my Mac, so it shows up, but I don’t have Georgia, so it is replaced by default sans.)
Places where they fail:
- The font picker list in the editor Style panel.
- The editor/preview window
- The web, once published - this one is especially problematic, since Windows users may be publishing sites thinking those are web fonts and not realizing they are using desktop fonts assumed to be on the user systems, alá 1999.
So I have to wonder if they belong on the list, though I don’t know how you take anything out of the list now that people have built sites around those fonts.
And PS- Comic Sans, really?
