Trebuchet is good.. but it is slightly smaller is size than other San
serifs, so I would say that is the only consideration


excellent web log on fonts, new content daily
quite a bit of content regarding digital fonts


more traditional look at fonts

updated daily

I'm using Dreamweaver, and the fancy indenting helps me to keep visual
over those multiple nested tables... :)

Yeah, as a result of the font thread, I just changed my font families to 
Geneva before Arial for better rendering on Macs! If you don't have Geneva, 
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
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
it's not 'oversized' like Verdana and Georgia.
