With the current stack that won't happen even if the user has downloaded
Arial, because Helvetica comes before Arial in the font-family settings.
Linux systems (you can check this using fc-match
) recognize and try to
match Helvetica first. We specifically put Helvetica there first so Linux
users would always get a good free font they have that is equivalent. For
most users (Ubuntu, Debian) this will be Nimbus Sans L.
