Following up to myself here for a second. The only default fonts it can't find are "Helvetica" and "Times". So maybe I just need to know how I can set font-sans-serif to "Verdana" and font-serif to Georgia . Here's my test code, using the list at the mailing list post http://www.rebol.org/cgi-bin/cgiwrap/rebol/ml-display-message.r?m=rmlNKCJ as a guide: view layout [ text "Courier" font-name "Courier" text "Times" font-name "Times" text "Helvetica" font-name "Helvetica" text "Arial" font-name "Arial" text "Verdana" font-name "Verdana" text "Georgia" font-name "Georgia" ] Times and "Helvetica" are the only lines that come up blank.
