You are right, it is Microsoft Sans Serif. Testing more on Win2k shows 
that with Tahoma, the edit field sets margins that depend on the font 
size. Explicitely setting "Microsoft Sans Serif" gives me the correct 
font, and it is indeed True Type, but both margins remain zero 
regardless of the font size.
