Re: Fonts used in print
countries where sans serif fonts are used more often for
body text than in the US and UK.
According to some now-dated figures in Adobe's "Branding with Type." professional documents in Europe use sans serifs about 70% of the time. In Britain, the figure is about 50%, and in North America about 15%.

"'To be, or not to be; that's the question,' said Eeyore. 'Some of us can, and some of us can't, and that's all there is to it. You know what I've been suffering, Piglet? Slings and arrows, that's what. And it's my birthday as well. I would have liked a balloon. But what do I get? Slings and arrows. Not to mention a sea of troubles. Did I mention a sea of troubles, Piglet?'"
