As I was working through the potential solution to the poser I posted yesterday (Setting Multi-Select Picker Widths in a SharePoint Form Reliably) last night, my addled brain wasn’t coming up with a good list of fonts to test my algorithm. I turned to the interWebs and found a slick site which has a great set of surveys of font usage for various platforms.
If you voyage on over to the CodeStyle Web Site, you’ll find all sorts of great information. What I was looking for was on the CSS font sampler and survey page, which gives you all of this delicious content to consume:
If you visit the font survey page for your platform, you can contribute to the survey by letting a little Java applet scan your machine for the installed fonts.
I’m not sure how this site fits into the general value scale of what’s out there on the Web, but it seems like a great, valuable set of information that looks valid to me.
