Ms fonts on linux


Hi all, I recently installed a package with the common MS Fonts, Verdana, Arial, Trebuchet, etc, etc..., but, even though I can use them in the display configuration...., whenever I do a web page, and set the font to one of these new ones...., it doesn't work.....

Any idea why???

Thanks in advance...

Fernando

Write
Code:
about:config
in the address bar, find the line: "font.FreeType2.enable"
and change it to true (by double-clicking it).
If it doesn't work you can take a look here to see how to enable FreeType in mozilla. I guess it's the same in firefox, since it's a mozilla-based borwser.
