Really nice fonts. – hims056 Sep 5 '12 at 9:54
Wait, is it FF DIN or FF DIN Web? Looked like the latter to me. – Ates Goral Oct 15 '12 at 17:05

@JeffAtwood: It worked! The pony lost the high pace at the end of October '09! See his reputation graph. – awe Aug 3 '12 at 10:39

I don't know what these fonts came with, but here are some possible candidates on my system that comes with a bunch of fonts:

  • MS Office Professional Plus 2010
  • Adobe Reader 9.5.1
