Viva la Font!
I'm told that sans-serif fonts are better for Microsoft PowerPoint, which may well be true, but regular serious type should be serif. This is the truth, and anyone who thinks otherwise is... well, I'd rather not say. (Yes, I'm being a tad bit, only a tad bit, tongue-in-cheek.) My favorite font of all is Garamond. Everyman's Library uses it for many of their books.
