The fonts on one of our macs have become corrupted. I was able to fix most of the problem by copying across a non-corrupt version of Lucida Grande from another Mac. However, the font used to display the file extension on the icons remains corrupted.

The image below shows a non-corrupted version of what I am referring to:

icon

What font is used to display the filetype in the above image?

I suggest trying the Helvetica Neue and Avenir families, as Apple uses them elsewhere. –  Andrew Lazarus Jun 9 '13 at 5:26
    
Hmm. I'll give it a shot. –  daviewales Jun 9 '13 at 7:36
    
I think it was Helvetica Neue. If you make that comment into an answer I'll accept it for you. –  daviewales Jun 9 '13 at 9:26
