>Look at Optima. It was designed to be used for both online and print.

Probably not, viz. --

"Optima is elegant and highly readable, qualities remarkable in a sans serif
design. Created in 1958 by Hermann Zapf for the Stempel foundry, Optima
combines features of both serif and sans serif types into one humanistic
design. The tapered strokes are reminiscent of the calligraphic pen, and the
character shapes are soothing to the eye. This sophisticated typeface is
excellent for a variety of uses ranging from corporate identities to
packaging to medium-length text.

Optima is a registered trademark of Linotype-Hell AG and/or its
subsidiaries. "

It's a beautiful font; very good for headlines, but I wouldn't recommend
using it for online body text.
