Re: Debian on the Desktop - plans for Lenny?
At least with debian.org, it appears the CSS specifies a font of "Arial,
Helvetica, sans-serif", which means if msttcorefonts isn't installed, it
falls back to the ugly bitmap Helvetica fonts. Which seems more like a bug
in the CSS for a website for free software, than in the web browsers obeying
That is the exact issue - on Ubuntu, Bitstream Vera Sans is used as a substitute for Arial by default if Arial isn't installed. It seems Debian should do the same.
