logical font in win95 vs. win nt

i created a logical font and used "ARIAL" as my 'facename'.  using win nt, when i printed the font to the printer, the arial font looks okay. but in win 95, the printed font was converted to courier.  i checked for the installed fonts and arial was there.  is there a difference in using win 95 vs. win nt?

There's no difference in the LOGFONT structure.

The problem is that CreateFont & CreateFontIndirect using a matching algorithm to find what Windows consider the closest match.

Makesure you fill in the all other attributes of LOGFONT correctly for the font you want.  I also suggest you use DRAFT_QUALITY, as with PROOF_QUALITY Windows is more fussy about getting an "ideal" appearance even if the font doesn't exactly match your requirements.
