The Help compiler will support any font on your development system. Now,
what will your users have?
For mass distribution, most WinHelp authors don't even use Arial and
Times New Roman. Rather, we use MS Serif and MS Sans Serif, two system
fonts that are on every Windows system and that are designed for optimal
appearance on 72 dpi computer screens.
