...why Arial was even created. The story goes that When Bill Gates designed Microsoft he didn't want to pay for Helvetica so he got Arial from Monotype. There are a lot of "Helveticas" out there, licenced to different companies, like Swis721 BT licenced to Bitstream. So why did Microsoft choose Arial? AND WHY DO SO MANY PEOPLE USE THIS UGLY TYPEFACE?????
