    Who has 'verdana' installed on their system?

    Just trying to find out how many of you has the font installed.

    I'm doing a site and thinking of using it as a device font.
    Tho, I found no statistics on how many machines have it instaled by default. anyone knows here?

    Everything I say is the truth.
    The above statement is a lie.

    Verdana, along with Tahoma and a few other fonts, comes with any version of Windows starting with Windows 95 OSR2, I believe.

    Yes, I have it.

    the above statement is true ... so just about all windows users will have it. I believe Verdana is a pretty ubitquitous font, meaning that almost evreyone has it as part of their OS
    Uh...where's my underwear?

    thanks, that's great. why bother making your movie 50-100k bigger in size
    because of a pixelfont when you can use a verdana 10pt as device.

    Beats most of the pixelfonts out there in my opinion.
