What happens if a font is not installed on the hosting OS?

Hi all,

I am a bit puzzled here. I am experimenting with fonts and what  
happens when a font is not installed on the hosting OS. I always  
thought Rev would fall back to Tahoma on Windows and Lucida on a Mac.  
However, when I created a stack (on the Mac), set different text fonts  
I know are not installed on Windows, then saved and launched it on the  
Winbox the text fields DO fall back to something, however it does not  
seem to be the same font for all fields...

Any ideas on that?

All the best,
