Microsoft’s Core Fonts

An unfortunate legacy of the browser wars is that many sites are designed specificly for Microsofts Internet Explorer and more importantly are designed around a few Microsoft specific fonts. Fortunately Micrsoft released these fonts gratis on the web. Note however, that the Tahoma font does require a valid Windows License.

Installation instructions

The corefonts project has links to the required files and instructions for building and installing the fonts on Linux.

Windows users without these fonts can simply download the required files.
