    Fonts for email newsletter

    hi

    I want to use "Calibri" and "Trebuchet MS' in my html email.

    These fonts got installed while installing windows. So they are default fonts in my windows xp.

    My question :

    Will these fonts be available to everyone seeing the email without embedding them like we embed custom fonts.

    Are these both fonts available in MAC also ?

    Or i will have to assume them as custom font and embed them like custom font ?

    Considering basic CSS support is iffy at best, adding fonts is impractical.

    Here's the list of default fonts included with OSX: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of...uded_with_OS_X

    Trebuchet MS is on the list, but not Calibri.

    Embedded fonts aren't viable in email at this stage, as shown here: http://www.campaignmonitor.com/blog/...work-in-email/

    Mac users that have Office installed will have the Calibri font available, but as a rule, you can't assume they'll have it.
