GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 120954
Use Sans Regular, not Helvetica for fallback
Last modified: 2004-12-22 21:47:04 UTC
Right now, if the specified font can't be found, "Helvetica"
is searched for as the fallback.
However, unless actually have Helvetica on the system, this
results in a random font being picked - whatever is first
in the list... on my system it is "Aharoni", a Hebrew font,
It ends up being 4MyLover.
This affects page numbers in Evolution, since they are
specified to be in "Helvetica"
A much better choice is to fall back to "Sans Regular", which
will be configured on ever system in the fonts.conf.
