Microsoft has recently (summer 1998) announced a set of 16 free fonts designed for use on computer screens; visit http://www.microsoft.com/typography/faq/faq8.htm for details, and http://www.microsoft.com/typography/web/default.htm for general commentary on fonts for World-Wide Web use.
You may also wish to visit http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fontpack/default.htm which is titled Free downloads - TrueType core fonts for the Web. On 12-Aug-2002, the Microsoft Web fonts program was discontinued; that link now contains pointers to other free font resources, but a mirror of the original contents is available at http://web.archive.org/web/20000420210719/http://www.microsoft.com/opentype/fontpack/default.htm .
A separate file, microsoft-fontnames.html summarizes the font offerings.
