Follow-up Comment #7, bug #53091 (project octave):

The problem is probably that we shouldn't use "Helvetica" on Windows (because
it isn't installed by default).
It is used as the default font in annotation.m.
If I search the Octave sources for "Helvetica", it is also used in
__gnuplot_draw_axes__.m and gl2ps-print.cc.
In __gnuplot_draw_axes__ at line 2328 we set "Arial" as a fall back font on
Windows. A little bit further down in line 2386, "Helvetica" is used as a fall
back font.

Maybe we should use "Arial" as the default font for Windows everywhere?
I wonder what Matlab is doing.
