Fonts you like and Fonts you hate

My professional writing instructor gave the class I was in some info on the difference between serif fonts and sans serif fonts. Apparently, when using the internet, people tend to prefer sans serif fonts when reading on the internet while they prefer serif fonts when reading books and stuff. Supposedly, our eyes track the little marks at the bottom of the serif font letters when we're reading books.

Anyway, I find Arial to be goddamn annoying.
I like Garamond, Georgia, and Trebuchet MS.
Verdana is also great for forums.

Re: Fonts you like and Fonts you hate

I liked the biggest font possible when I was in college. As long as it took up the most space at size 12, I loved it.

Re: Fonts you like and Fonts you hate

right now im just learning about increasing my margins by maybe an extra .2 just for an extra few words. its ridiculous that professors require a certain amount of words when i can say it in maybe a 1/4.
