    Arial for headings, and Times New Roman for the text.

    Anything else should burn in hell IMO. ;)

    I cant believe people actually care this much about fonts... I mean if youre working in a design studio fair enough but most of the time it really dosnt matter. I certainly dont give a damn about the history or background of any font I use, easily legible and not utterly ugly is all I ask.

    Borg 9 (the Airwolf font) for the cheesecake.

    Failing that... Verdana

    When you work 8 hours a day in front of a screen fonts do matter.

    When you walk along a street you don't (obviously) apreciate fonts and typography, but imagine that street with every sign, shop front and logo using the same font. Would make things a little boring doncha think?

    I like that in Verdana there's actually a difference between I and l.

    I do I just dont think it makes that much difference, Ive tried using different fonts but found no difference at all so I stick to what Im used to.

    I do appreciate typography from a graphic design point of view, its important to have a font that fits in the context its being used, and to have variety, but to have so many strong opinions on a "favorite" font without context seems strange to me.
