Windows default fonts

The following table lists the fonts available on various Windows systems by default, i.e. as installed by simply installing an unmodified Windows. The data is extracted from Microsoft's Fonts and Products, URL http://channels.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/ as accessed 1999-08-27.

The presentation naturally depends on your browser and its settings and the fonts there are in your system! (For example, IE 4 on WinNT displays Arial Bold, Arial Bold Italic, and Arial Italic as normal Arial, whereas Netscape 4 uses the bold, bold italic, or italic variant, and Opera 3.60 displays them using whatever font is the browser's default font.)
