CygnusDarius: Really, really?.

Are we discussing fonts now?.

Not us...we're too cool for that. We are discussing the discussion of fonts.

Broadly speaking, you only need two fonts. You want a "serif" font for printouts, and a "sans-serif" font for screen reading.

I recommend Papyrus and Comic Sans, respectively.

/Well, okay, DISrespectively
//Hate the gross overuse of those two fonts...

So Lars Willem Veldkamp says that Arial means "I am the devil" and then uses Arial in his description of what each font means. So is that an admission?
