I work in a multinational office. Some people have CHN copies of Windows 7/XP and Office 2007/2010 installed, others have various ENG variants. All are legit.
I was surprised to discover recently that the official, licensed fonts included in these various packages are not all equivalent.
Clearly, a Chinese version would need a healthy selection of East Asian fonts that your average English version would never need (so you get SimSun and that's it), but there are some major (IMO) omissions on the English side.
For example, CHN versions don't ship with the Gill Sans series, or apparently with Gabriola?
And because these are official, licensed Microsoft fonts it seems they cannot be (easily) sourced, downloaded, and transferred between systems.
Has anyone dealt with this problem? Is there a master Microsoft font list or plug-in available so my office can standardize its font selection?
