Fonts installed on the web client?

Don't really want to embed fonts, it adds to the download
time, although this may be my only choice.

I am also not sure how the browsers handle families of
fonts. I am using Arial and Sans-Serif for ALL the
languages and the client sees empty squares instead of a
language font until they install a particular culture.
Embedding a whole family of fonts does not sound like a
fast download.

Detecting whether the font is available on the client
still remains an issue.

Again, thanks for your help, Chris!
