Strictly, not a coding thing, but it’s about font style. How to Spot Arial and The Scourge of Arial are interesting reads.
For years now I’ve been interested in typography. It seems to me that it’s one of those overlooked things – that web page looks okay, until someone who knows about type works on it, and then it looks great.
I agree with the article, I don’t like Arial – the weight of the top of the ‘a’ seems wrong. Not sure what to use instead – at the moment I use Tahoma and Trebuchet a lot, but I’m not entirely happy with either. And yes, I’m sticking with the free fonts – I’m not a specialist, I ain’t paying for fonts (blimey but some of them cost…)
