Blackletter typeface in Windows?

Is there a blackletter typeface in default Windows installations? – or at least a fairly common one? I've got an idea for a website with blackletter drop caps and the occasional heading. I'd rather not resort to images since it's otherwise all C.S.S.

I think you're going to be out of luck in covering at least 90% of viewers, and will have to bow to graphics. However, you don't need to panic too much, CSS can still do the hard work for you.

You can do font detection using a combination of Java and Javascript.
