Becca,

"Favourite" fonts is a misnomer. Font choice is subjective; each has
their own favourites. I usually visit http://www.fontsquirrel.com/ and
check for new fonts that do what I want. Note also that each font
style also needs appropriate leading and line length for optimal
display.

The client has expressed a slight preference for sans serif fonts, because they look more modern. The client also wants things to "look pretty". What are some good, readable sans serif fonts (other than Verdana and Calibri)? do you have any favorite fonts you like to use? (I gather these guides may also be used as marketing tools, which is why the "looks pretty" requirement.)
