Default Identify this font

Someone on an IRC group where I hang out has asked for identification of a font.

Specifically, it's the font in the raaD in the upper left-hand corner.

Ideas would be helpful. Positives would be great.

It looks very much like Lucida Italic. I'm not sure the serif at the top of the r is the same thickness. My sample for italic is quite small.

I am pretty sure that is Lucida Italic (see the attachment).

The larger text, however, is definitely not Lucida Sans; have to rummage further to identify that (if you need to know).

As I have Lucida installed, and it's a common font in open-source applications (which is the case here), I should have looked more carefully; I think you're right.

I don't need to know about the others.

Thanks,

HW
