Thanks for that interesting link Kris I have always liked verdana and it's nice to have some evidence to encourage clients to use it. I so often get clients telling me that times new roman is the best font for legibility, but it feels so drab when you are building a site based on that font. I know the obsession with times new roman is a hang-over from when people learnt about print fonts, so it's great to have a university psychology department report to back up my own feelings.

Besides being the most preferred, it was read fairly quickly and was perceived as being legible." k -- * * Please support the community that supports you. * * http://evolt.org/help_support_evolt/ For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archives of thelist go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
