I like the look of Segoe UI, so I use it in my print and website materials
for body text. For headings in print, I use Myriad Pro. Just personal
preference, although Microsoft gives Segoe its blessing for UI text now.

Subject: favored fonts?
I'm putting together a couple of quick reference guides that will be
delivered as pdfs which may, or may not be printed. 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.)
