favorite fonts

December 09, 2003 | View Comments (6) | simpl(e)y asking

Being lovers of design and typography we are always wondering if people love the same fonts that we love. The web community is not as fortunate as the print community, who get to play with all the fonts they want. The web community is a little more limited with which fonts are guaranteed to display across all browsers. canadadrugcenter.com

So we were just wondering what your favorite fonts were? We ask because maybe there are a couple we have yet to see and we are always interested in finding new toys to play with. Also, does anyone know of any references that show which fonts are supplied by default across Microsoft and Apple platforms?

Lately I have been in a Helvetica kind of mood.

Font survey results at Code Style.

"The Code Style font sampler is a reference point to the most common fonts available on Web users' computers."

My actual favorite ist "Bitstream Vera" though it is not very popular now.

Uneasy lies the head that wears a crown. nizoral buy nizoral Knowing I lov'd my books, he furnish'd me From mine own library with volumes that I prize above my dukedom.

But love is blind and lovers cannot see The pretty follies that themselves commit; For if they could, Cupid himself would blush To see me thus transformed to a boy. nolvadex buy nolvadex If all the year were playing holidays; To sport would be as tedious as to work.
