Then text in \textsf{} will be in Helvetica. To be exact: not the  
system's fonts will be used but those from the TeX installation. And  
the PDF files built won't even contain them. (There are 14 fonts a  
PDF document does not need to embed.)

Of course. Look also at the gtamacfonts package (texdoc gtamacfonts)!



When confronted with actual numbers, a mathematician is at a loss.
