    I do all my work in Tahoma or Arial. Looks pretty neat and easy to read.
    I make revision notes in comic sans- I don't like it but It just looks a bit more friendly.

    I had never heard of 'eunoia' before, but it's now officially one of my favourite words! I also approve massively of the idea of getting it as a tattoo.
    I'm glad you approve! :P I think I came across it by chance in a text book but it doesn't seem to be in the OED or anything so I was quite worried about getting it for a long time. There's articles on wikipedia and the bbc about it though... so that's enough proof for me that it actually exists (Y)

    That would be kinda cool but I want to get 'eunoia'- it's a word with greek origins. It roughly means 'beautiful thinking' but as i understand, it's also a pretty obscure term in psychology meaning 'well mind' or 'balanced mind'.
    Now wouldn't it be brilliant if there was actually a font that went by that name as well? In fact, there probably is, given how many different fonts there are... It might be really ugly-looking, though.:p:

    I actually find Comic Sans the easiest to read (apparently it was designed because some people find the spiky fonts difficult to read).

    I don't like the look of it though, I think my favourite for every day work is Calibri. It's softer than Arial, Times New Roman and the rest.
    My mum used to work for the council, apparently it was often used for children because of it's simplistic feel I don't mind it in that case, but I hate seeing things intended for asdults in Comic Sans!

    There is a delightful early Saxon font at the church in Deerhurst Glos.

    Anything sans-serif. Serif fonts make my head hurt.

    Calibri. I used to be a Tahoma girl, but found it was a bit too big. Calibri is far more neat looking.

    Favourite for what? Used OCR last week when I wanted a 'futuristic' effect.

    :yep: if you print it at large point sizes for classroom posters it looks less authoritarian than most others.

    I tried calibri when I got office 2010 but i'm back to arial, seem to get more readability per point size... And i'm not keen on the calibri little g.
