Is Arial really a copy of Helvetica? I’ve recently started appreciating Arial, as long as it’s bolded and at 8.5. I know a few designers who LOVE Helvetica and I never understood it until I started playing with the tiny but bold Arial.

great jokes. I’m rolling on the floor with laughter. Well, not really. But they still are very amusing. history of Arial: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arial basically, Microsoft ripped off Helvetica in 1982. What a surprise. Microsoft ripped off someone else’s work.

Arial lacks the refinement and diversity/assortment Helvetica does. While the differences are small, they can be appreciated. Helveticas upper case R for example. — Here’s my joke How do you get a web designer off of your front porch? PAY FOR YOUR PIZZA! haha
