    Actually, Windows 2000 and XP do use Tahoma by default as the font for
    icon titles, menu items, and so forth. I'm using it on Windows Me only
    because I changed it manually from MSSS to make the desktop look more
    like Win 2000. ☺

    But Adam's example came in the body of a message, which I changed to
    Arial Unicode MS to escape the limits of plain-Arial that you mentioned.
    If it had appeared in the address bar of IE (or other browser), it would
    have shown the I vs. l difference that Adam pointed out.
