    I really like the Microsoft sans serif font, and when i had a pc i saved a doc with that font. I recently opened it with my mac and it was still in microsoft sans serif font. Now is there a way i can put that font in the really long pull down list of fonts in word? cause its not showing up in there.

    also what is the font that safari uses? like if you just type something in google all the links will show up in this font.

    thanks

    I think you're going to have to be more specific... The last time I used word, which was admittedly years ago, Ariel was the default font, but that could have been the individual computer's settings.

    The standard font for Safari is Lucida Grande 14.

    Websites can overrule default fonts, so google's font may be different...

    there's so many variables here, it's hard to know which font you're talking about in particular...

    Ok, my partner uses a PC at work and has this font. I'll have him email it to me, then i can pass it on to you if you'd like. It's a truetype font, i believe, so it should work properly on the Mac.

    You'll have to email or PM me with your email address, so i can send it as an attachment.

    :)
