I had no trouble getting Verdana and Georgia to work with Navigator on my
Mac. Just toss the suitcases into the font folder.
On the typefaces themselves, I'll side with those who say Verdana seems a
bit wide, especially in small sizes -- I prefer Helvetica and others that
are narrower on screen. Large sizes of Verdana look good.
And on my system, Georgia "feels" too big at 12 point and too small at
10. For me, 11 "feels" just right. I think its what Rolf Rehe was talking
about ealier -- that legibility actually decreases at "too large" sizes.
