Arial versus Helvetica

Yet another comparison between Helvetica and its sometimes maligned Monotype ``clone'' [not my words], Arial. And a test to tell one from the other. Footnote: Arial is designed to compete with Helvetica, yes, but it is based on Monotype Grotesque (early 1900s) and not on Helvetica. Pic with a comparison.
