 We wouldn't be able to use Arial exactly, because it is not available
 under a free license. For the same reason, Arial will never be a part of
 Tails or Debian.

 You can see what fonts are being used this way:
  1. Right-click on the text.
  2. Choose "Inspect Element" from the menu that appears.
  3. A new panel will open on the browser and there will be a tab labeled
 "Fonts". (For me it is on the right side.)
 We might be able to make some progress if you can do that on a browser
 where the text looks good, and tell us what font is being used.
