 Bitstream Vera Sans is not an uncommon font in Windows.  According to


 ... it is found in 25% of Windows systems.

 So, in those systems, instead of the ideal and recently introduced
 Verdana, Bitstream Vera Sans will be used now, which is nowhere near
 Verdana as a web font.

 couple of days.  (I don’t know which program or programs install Bitstream
 Vera in Windows.  Probably OpenOffice is one -- it was common in all three
