Trebuchet is good.. but it is slightly smaller is size than other San serifs, so I would say that is the only consideration <tip> http://www.webtype.org excellent web log on fonts, new content daily quite a bit of content regarding digital fonts another http://linesandsplines.com more traditional look at fonts updated daily </tip> -----Original Message----- From: muinar [mailto:muinar at gmx.net] Sent: Thursday, December 21, 2000 1:07 PM To: thelist at lists.evolt.org; thelist at lists.evolt.org Subject: Re: [thelist] Web Fonts II [was: Netscape table behavior - grrr] I'm using Dreamweaver, and the fancy indenting helps me to keep visual control over those multiple nested tables... :) Yeah, as a result of the font thread, I just changed my font families to include Geneva before Arial for better rendering on Macs! If you don't have Geneva, you'll get Arial, which I prefer in this case to Verdana. I only use Verdana as the first font in a font family, never as a substitute, because it renders a lot bigger than all other fonts (except Georgia). What do others think about Trebuchet on the web? MS tells on its web page that it's been distributed which all major MS apps for some years now. It's well readable on screen, and it can well be substituted by Geneva or Arial because it's not 'oversized' like Verdana and Georgia. Mike S.
