Okay, it's always fun to watch tech writers decide what the "best" font is.

Let's put this in a different context:

• What's the best kind of wood?

• What's the best herb?

• What's the best fabric?

• What's the best program?

• What is the best prescription drug?

All together now: It depends!

As Bruce and others have noted, context matters when you are selecting fonts. What are your goals? Where will the fonts be used (print, online, or both)? How will they be used (i.e., what does the page design look like)?

Work with a professional typographer to create your design templates. This is a one-time expense that will pay for itself many times over.
