Are there fonts that match those used in the ECMA-357 2nd edition document?

Follows my attempts to discover the font:

  • I have searched for ECMA-357 in the TC39 GitHub and found no matching repositories.
  • I have tried opening it in LibreOffice and it converted the PDF by taking out the original font, so no luck there.
  • I have tried an online service to detect the used font and it yielded Arial Greek. Arial Greek seems commercial. I'd like to know if there is a font in fonts.google.com that is close to the one in the document.

    If the font is in a PDF, you can open it in Acrobat and see a list of the fonts in it. That said, at first glance, it looks like Arial or Helvetica, though it's hard to be sure. Commented Mar 18 at 18:04
  • @cybernetic.nomad You're right, under Document properties I was able to find a small number of fonts, and ArialMT was listed there.

    Had a quick look, can confirm it's definitely Arial. The characters: t,1, and R are all dead giveaways for this font, and differentiate it from Helvetica.
