    New forum font

    Any possibility that we can have the helvetica font type installed for selection on the forum?

    There's always a free copy somewhere on the Internet.

    EDIT: Thanks for supporting the suggestion by the way.

    Apologies to burst your bubble guys, but VBulletin runs on windows font.

    You cannot simply 'install' a font and everyone will see it, the font has to be installed on windows first.
    So even if Dabey added the Helvetica font only the people with the font installed on windows will be able to see it, the rest will get some shitty generic font.

    Notice how all the currently available fonts come stock standard with Windows? Yeah, if someone wanted to view my post formatted with "Century Gothic" on a mac, they'd get some shitty generic font.
    helt ensam.

    Damnit!
    Visually though for us it would be good looking.
