Hi John,

I used to use Arial for my help systems, but recently I've switched to using
MS Sans Serif (8pt for body text, 12 pt for major headings). I believe this
is what Microsoft and Corel use too. So far I like the results -- the text
seems much more readable than when I used Arial (although I couldn't
explain why).

Good luck!
