Thanks a lot will try it out.. is any of this web safe font ? – Harsha M V Jun 3 '11 at 17:15
No. But Helvetica is on all Macs and very similar to (but not the same as) Arial on all PCs. – e100 Jun 3 '11 at 18:29
What did they all smoke to find Helvetica very similar to Arial?! – mbx Jun 4 '11 at 10:39
Let me rephrase: Arial is the ugly twin sister of Helvetica. They share lots of their specifications as they belong to the same family, but "very similiar" is not the phrase. Arial totally okay for low resolution web text. But I wouldn't use it for print or as part of the cd. – mbx Jun 5 '11 at 14:43
@e100: The most obvious difference is the top of the lower-case "t" - In Helvetica it is flat across, in Arial it slants. The same goes for the ends of the lower-case "s" and Upper & lower "C/c. Also, the UC "R" in Helv rounds down towards the baseline straight-vertical. In Arial it is more of a diagonal towards the next letter. The tail on Arial's UC "Q" has a slight curve to it; in Helv it is a more perfect geometric bar. There are a few other slight variances in the lettershapes but those are the most easily described. Overall Helvetica is more geometric than Arial, and Arial has some sligh – emcarnahan Oct 22 at 18:35

Arimo Bold 72px

Indeed I use Georgia as my preferred serif font. My companion sans-serif font stack, which includes the Google font Arimo (illustrated above), is

"Helvetica Neue", HelveticaNeue, TeXGyreHeros, FreeSans, "Nimbus Sans L", "Liberation Sans", Arimo, Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;

except for large non-italic headings, for which I insert "Microsoft Sans Serif" ahead of "Liberation Sans". I give my reasons in "A multiplatform Helvetica-like font stack that suppresses Arial".
