Re: Default font in Mathematica 9
Posted:

Murray, I am referring to Output cells. I used the Creative/Natural Color stylesheet (which no longer is accessible from the Mathematica 9 menu, but does exist among the Mathematica files). Interestingly, I now see that my Output cells were in Traditional Form but now are in Standard Form. Any thoughts? Thanks, Brendan

What cell style(s) are you referring to  Input? Text?
I believe the default for Input cells has remained Courier across several versions, including 9.
At least on Mac, the default for Text cells has indeed changed  from Times to Arial.
To revert to Mathematica 8's Text default of Times, you'll need to mess with the Default.nb stylesheet, per methods documented elsewhere. Or, better yet, create your own version of that stylesheet.
