Microsoft is releasing six new typefaces next year, all will be introduced and over a few years hopefully will be adopted for all computers released. This means we’ll have that many more fonts to use on web sites! Hooray. There is an article over at Poynter Online which discusses these fonts, shows samples, and provides a bit more background.
It makes me wonder when Apple will get their act together and release some fonts, too. I’m sure they could release them and have them installed alongside of iTunes which would assist in their adoption rate.
