What is the Windows System Font

Hi,

I am a Mac user, and I am making a cross-platform application. I know
I can use the font "System" in RB to get both the Mac and Windows
system fonts, however I want to know the exact name of the Windows
system font. Because I am making a splash screen in paint program
that doesn't have access to the RB font "System". If I can't access
it in MacOS I will use a PC Emulator to do so.

Brian

This font is different on the different Windows versions and it is user
setable.

Of course I have a function called SystemFontMBS in my plugins, but you
may better go with something using a special font which is everywhere
installed.
(or a list of fonts where you select the first one which is installed)

On my XP machine, it is Tahoma. I have no idea what it is elsewhere, or
how it may be affected by user themes.
