There's a study online from the Software Usability Research Lab at
Wichita State University at:

http://psychology.wichita.edu/surl/usabilitynews/41/onlinetext.htm

And there's a whole list of links to dicussions of proper font use,
about halfway down the page, on the Web page of STC's Usability SIG, at:

Hope this helps.
