We have decided to update our style manual. In doing so, I am researching different font choices (font name, size, effects, etc.). I am wondering what other writers are using in their manuals. I have poured through Microsoft's new Manual of Style for Technical Publications, and I am in agreement with their choices. However, I want to find out what other technical writers are doing.
What font formats (font, size, effects, etc.) do you use for body text? headings? chapter titles? call-outs? on-screen text? How many different fonts are you using on a page?
