TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
We use Times New Roman for body text, Arial for headings, Courier
for code. Not particularly imaginative, but so far nobody has ever sent
us documentation feedback that comments on font design or claims that
the PDFs are hard to read. Nobody has ever sent us any letters
demanding that we pay royalties for distributing PDFs containing these
fonts, either. Generally, life around here seems complicated enough
without spending a lot of time worrying about these things. YMMV.
