FontFilter: What font is used in Photoshop CS3 dialog boxes?

What font is used in Photoshop CS3 dialog boxes (screenshot here)? I find the text to be unusually legible and would like to use it for other things.

While the OS X dialog in your screenshot looks like Myriad, the Photoshop dialog looks like it's using Geneva.

The screenshot is not a standard OS X dialog, it's the Adobe-specific one used in CS applications. (There's even a button to switch to the standard OS dialog.)

Seconding the tried-and-true Mac font Geneva (which looks quite odd all anti-aliased and dressed up after several decades.)

FWIW the website "whatthefont" is outstandingly useful for this sort of thing.
