I think you were right to insist on readable fonts for a planning document
(or any document, for that matter), but "fancy" (i.e., not T-R and Helv, or
an equally Dull Normal font set) is not necessarily a synonym for
"unreadable." Apart from there being a huge selection of fonts out there,
changing things like line spacing, kerning, point size, etc. can sometimes
turn something unreadable, with serifs from here 'till Eternity, into
something usasble! Believe it...or don't!
