Font matrix

Western fonts matrix

Richard Rutter of 24 ways has “put together a matrix of (western) fonts showing which are installed with Mac and Windows operating systems, which are installed with various versions of Microsoft Office, and which are installed with Adobe Creative Suite.”

The fonts matrix can be downloaded (XLS or CSV) or printed for handy reference.
