My AdSense ads are in Verdana.

Except some are in Arial.

And my AdLinks blocks are in Arial.

My site uses Verdana; so it would be nice for Google to allow us to select from the 'standard' fonts - Arial, Verdana, and Times New Roman - for all AdSense blocks.

Anyone else want this, or is it just me?

I agree with you but we aren't allowed to change it.

That would be an excellent feature to have in normal adsense accounts...

You can do it with CSS. Is it really against TOC?

<STYLE TYPE="text/css">
.deftxt { font-family: Verdana; font-size: 11px; color: #333333}
</style>

<span class="deftxt">
adsense here
</span>

You CAN'T change the font that way, taunon.

The adsense code loads a page into an iframe and can't be changed by css or javascript.

You could grab the ads using php, replace the fonts and then display... but that's bad and Google would notice.

Adsense team members read this forum regularly.

Maybe if we make enough noise they might implement a change ; )

I think they haven't given us the option beause they want some consistency.

We were discussing exactly this issue the other days since all our horizontal ads use Verdana and our verticals all use Arial.

they want some consistency.

It's consistent however not aesthetically perfect.

Verticals use Arial.
Buttons and horizontals use Verdana.
Except AdLink buttons/horizontals use Arial.

Consistent? Nah, not really.
