Website Font Face/Size You Like The Best?

 9:40 pm on Feb 1, 2010 (gmt 0)


I currently have "Verdana" set on my site with font size mainly varying from 2 or 3...However, I'm thinking of changing the font face to "Arial".

What font face and sizes do you currently use on your website?

Thank you,

Pretty much gave up on pixel based layout years back. KISS method in use these days: h1 150%, h2 120%, h3 120% ITALIC, body 1em, Copyright 80%, small body 90%. Works for me. Seems to work for most resolutions from 800x600 to 1680x1050. Don't know too many running the higher resolutions at full screen, but then again, I don't know everybody! :)

(Google "why not to use Verdana".....)

Off topic, but I find it interesting that one of the prominent results leads to a page bearing "W3C validation" with a background that renders it nearly illegible. Sweet irony.
