Don't forget that the readability will also depend on other factors
such as the leading that you use, the extent, margins, etc., plus
typefaces such as Garamand have fine detail that will be lost when
displayed/printed at low resolution, that is anything less than 600
dpi, but then again I have a fine eye for detail :-)

Alternatives: you might want to take a look at the Amasis family from
Monotype (if you drop me your fax number I'll send over some page
proofs for a book that I once set in it).

We are redesigning our template and have tentatively picked Garamond 11 point
for the body text. Some of our writers have concerns about the readability of
both the font and point size. We ship our doc as hard copy and PDF files, so
resolution online is a consideration.

Suggestions? Altneratives?
