Hello all -

My company's manuals and reports (mostly distributed in hard copy for use in
training classes) are all currently produced in sans serif type (with full
justification). Information in these manuals is of a somewhat technical
nature, but it's not "rocket science" nor software- or hardware- related.
I'm trying to convince folks here to change to serif type (ragged right).
After 12 years of writing, I still I feel it's easier on the eye, and more
"friendly" in appearance. Have any of you come across this situation? What
are some of your thoughts on serif vs. sans serif for print? How do you
think I could best persuade "them" to make the change? Any and all comments
most appreciated! (FYI - I'm on digest.)
