I Feel Like Annoying Typeface Nerds Today…

You can also call it “Arial Serif” if you like, because Arial and Helvetica are the same thing.

Saying Arial and Helvetica are the same thing is going to incite a Type Nerd riot. 😀

Helvetica and Arial are like Transformers and Gobots. Your parents might have thought they were the same, but instead of getting you Optimus Prime, you got this lame ass robot that turns into a dump truck. The horror.

I wish I could internet slap you for that Helvetica == Arial comment!

Now THIS deserves a “Mission Accomplished” banner!

Have you seen the Helvetica documentary? If you have not, you should. It’s really interesting.

@Gianni: Actually, Helvetica === Arial, same type.
