Fonts

These are microsoft truetype fonts ye seek. Seek and ye shall find but be warned!

Ye may vex the google with yer slack spell-making of Arial and violate the GPL and worse yet rouse the beast of Redmond!

Yes - you can download it, along with Verdana, TimesNewRoman etc. as part of the MS Corefonts package from http://corefonts.sourceforge.net.

Cheers,

If you have Windoze, you can copy the TTF fonts onto a Cd or removable disc then install them on Linux using the KDE font installer, if you use KDE.
