Web fonts program stopped

Tuesday 13 August 2002

I have praised Georgia and Verdana, the very screen-legible typefaces designed by Matthew Carter for Microsoft, saying: You can download them for free. It’s one offer from Bill Gates I recommend you accept.

Now, when you go to the Microsoft Typography website you get this churlish message: Microsoft’s TrueType core fonts for the Web are no longer available for download from www.microsoft.com. What’s going on?
