Times New Roman

Times New Roman is a serif typeface, produced by Monotype for Microsoft, and distributed with every copy of Microsoft Windows since version 3.1. As with Times on the Apple Macintosh, it is used as the default font in many applications, especially Web browsers and word processors.

Times New Roman is based on the original Times Roman font developed for the Times of London in the mid-1930s, also by Monotype; Times New Roman was the first TrueType version of Times, and differs from Times Roman in name (Linotype, Times' first licensee, owns the Times Roman trademark in the USA) and very slight differences in design.
