A little on the history of fonts

Guy Kawasaki really comes up with some amazing references, in addition to his own very worthwhile writing. One of his blog entries today links to a piece entitled "The Scourge of Arial" which I found to be a very informative and entertaining commentary and history of the typeface. I was a little relieved (disappointed?) to find "Helv" missing in the saga of how Helvetica was "replaced" by Arial.
