    I suppose this is a good thing for web designers (like myself), but a bad thing for people like you :p

    My bet is $0.00. The TrueType fonts in the set of Windows core set are not original to Windows, but were licensed from font foundries such as Monotype. This report strikes me as non-news. The underlying technology in Microsoft-developed TrueType fonts comes from Apple. At most, this new agreement reassures users of either platform that they need have no concerns about their fonts.

    For Safari, open up TextEdit change the mode to 'plain text' and type this in:
    Code:
    body {
    	font-family: "Courier New", Courier, monospace;
    }
    
    Save it as *.css (anything with a .css extension). Then in Safari go Safari --> Preferences --> Advanced and attach the stylesheet you must made :)

    Apple should ditch arial and substitute helveitica/helvetica neue system-wide (i.e. whenever a webpage, word doc, etc. calls for it). It would make the web look much nicer :)
