Allowed to distribute fonts?

The Windows XP specification says that Franklin Gothic should be used for
titles at certain point levels.

So I am thinking to use this font for report titles. It seems that this font
family is installed only with Windows XP (though for some reason it's on my
Win2000 machine).

Can I legally distribute this font with by Access97 App since all machines
may not have it installed?

TIA

I suspect you can not legally redistribute that font, but you need to
carefully read the license information that came with Windows XP. If you
still have questions, you'd need to contact Microsoft on the matter.

That is about as useful as those posts from Don - except far less
entertaining. If you don't have anything useful to contribute, why not
return to the MS group? We've all been enjoying your recent absence from
this group.
