Hello:

Thanks for previous help.

Is there a single font called "Arial Times New Roman" ?

Or, is it (only) an "Arial" Font, and another, second, font called "Times
New Roman" ?

Thanks,
Bob

The latter. TNR is the install default font in Word. Arial and TNR are quite
different. TNR is a serifed font - little strokes at the top and or bottom
of the main verticals or horizontals of letters. Conversely, Arial is a
sans serif font with no adornments to the letter strokes. Broadly speaking,
serifed fonts work well as standard paragraph text being especially readable
in smaller sizes. Sans Serif fonts scale upwards well and are good for
headings and titles. But the two font types have to be mixed with great
care.

To add to what Terry has said, most of Word's built-in styles use either
Times New Roman (body text) or Arial (some headings and a few other styles).
A few (such as Plain Text, Macro Text, and HTML Code) use Courier New, and a
couple of display types (Balloon Text, Document Map) use Tahoma.
