Tahoma is missing from the table. I think it’s up in the air whether or not it’s web safe. It’s shipped with all versions of Windows since Windows 95 and ships with OS X 10.5 (Leopard) and higher, but on Linux you generally won’t find it – it’s not installed by default and not part of the msttcorefonts package. However, a fallback to the similiar, but wider, Verdana may be acceptable.
