Ulrich Stiehl: Monotype forges Arial from Helvetica

Details by Ulrich Stiehl (Heidelberg) on how Monotype's designers Robin Nicholas and Patricia Saunders crafted Arial out of Helvetica by changing only a few glyphs, keeping the Helvetica metrics, sloping some stroke endings (on c and e for example), and inserting new copyright notices. Pic with a comparison.
