    We miss Helvetica. Our Weaver II website used the Helvetica font. We moved to Weaver Xtreme and got the Plus plug-in. The previously defined Helvetica text remains in the webpages but new text cannot be in Helvetica. Is there a way to add the Helvetica font?

    Open Sans is almost indistinguishable from Helvetica. I just created two pages using each, and I could not find any real differences.

    I don’t really remember enough about Weaver II to know the source of the Helvetica font it used, but there are copyright and other issues with using Helvetica. I think there was a crackdown, and Weaver Xtreme uses only public domain fonts. That is why Open Sans was created and is widely used.

    Weave Xtreme Plus does allow you to upload whatever fonts you wish and add them manually. There are instructions at

    Roboto from Google fonts is a pretty good alternative too.
