    Tahoma is probably my favourite.

    Especially when I have to italic that font.

    Mmmm.

    Ubuntu (and formerly Century Gothic, it's still up there tbh) for headings, Calibri for main text.

    Comic Sans

    Seriously though, I've recently started to love the slab-serif font Rockwell for headings, but still love the legendary sans-serif fonts like Helvetica, Arial, etc. for body text.

    Calibri I think, it's formal enough to be used for most things yet without the 'spikiness' and general look of times new roman and things like that. There are several similar ones though, like tahoma I think is one of them. Can't stand comic sans though, it just doesn't even look like it's been typed and takes me straight back to the old year 7 essays people used to use it for.

    Anything but Comic Sans. Unless it's some kind of hugely ironic internet meme, in which case always Comic Sans.

    Serif fonts are so declassé.

    Whenever I come across my GCSE(!) coursework written in Comic Sans... I just feel bad.

    Helvetica, because it works in everything. Least favourite is Verdana because it scales badly on the web, which is why I'd love to know why it's my companies default font for web stuff :confused:

    Exactly! I was guilty of it as much as anyone else- although not at GCSE- but it just makes me wonder how I could ever have thought it looked good.

    Open Sans is a really nice font, it looks great in PDFs. I think I'd put it above Century Gothic (for titles & headings!)

    Source Sans Pro - It's great for paragraphs.
    Lato is good for headings, I find.

    Also, an excellent font resource for you font fiends is google fonts, easy, free and quick.. http://www.google.com/fonts
