Hi group,

I'm working on a project where the customer
wants an old, 1000-page document updated. The
document is so old it's formatted in Courier,
and this is the font the Customer wants me to
use on the _new_ document. She believes that
Courier is eminently readable and the best
choice of fonts. Help!

Time is running out, and I haven't been able
to find any authoritative sources to backup
my argument that a proportional, serif font
like Times-Roman would be more readable.

Can anyone help? Thanks a bunch in advance,
