Default seriously, seriously pointless poll.. sorta.

So, this isn't really a poll, per se, but more of an inquisitive of what you prefer.

What's your favorite font? Mine has to be Garamond. In case you don't know what Garamond is, look at my banner. that's Garamond.

I used to use Arial for any sites that I coded, but I got bored of that and use Trebuchet MS now. It's simple and sans-serifs so I like it as a change from Arial. I also like VTCorona (and other 'dirty typewriter' fonts) and Intimacy for use with things other than web pages. Those two are just personal taste, I guess.

Used to be Comic Sans, but now is Notepad (look at the "Supur")

Default Re: seriously, seriously pointless poll.. sorta.

as a graphic designer, i have a few favorites. an image of all mentioned fonts are at the bottom of the post:

sans serif: i'm a really big fan of myriad pro and franklin gothic. i also like the font apple uses for its applications, lucinda.

serif: garamond is one of the best fonts for readibility. so is times new roman. however, my favorite is minion pro. it's like those other fonts, but has a little more spunk. honorable mention goes to palatino linotype.

monotype: courier new is too damn thin, so i'm gonna go with courier std. it looks more like a typewriter font that way.

script: wendy LP...the best script i've ever seen, and i use it for many projects.

Arial forever! Woot. All other fonts are for heretics. *dons tinfoil hat* <img src=smilies/magbiggrin.gif>

I second that for most documents and Windows based fonts and the like. For more "flashy" stuff, I usually look around for something that more fits the style of the work in progress.
