Description Behdad Esfahbod 2012-03-22 08:11:37 UTC
ChromeOS developed their own fonts metric-compatible with Arial, Times New Roman, and Helvetica New.  We should hook them up in the metric-aliases file.  Here more info on where to find them:

What's the expected order of the fonts?
Comment 2 Behdad Esfahbod 2012-04-02 21:43:13 UTC
I'm not sure.  I *guess* the ChromeOS ones are higher quality than the other alternatives so I would prefer them over the other MS font replicas.
