Helvetica headings with Times body text look pretty good. Garamond text
with Futura or Trade Gothic headings look classy. Make sure when you pick
a font for headings that you choose one with many faces (Extra Bold, Ultra
Condensed, Condensed, Extra Bold Condensed, etc.) so you'll have some
flexibility in your style sheets--Helvetica and Futura are excellent in
this regard. If you don't go with these choices, pick two contrasting
fonts (serif and sans-serif being the most common pairing) that have
similar x-heights (x-height is the height of the lowercase letter x).
