#122608 - 12/10/0309:37 PMNews page now in Verdana font?
Is it a fluke on my end or did the MacMinute newspage change its font to Verdana? (I'm at work on a Wintel box, so a fluke is not unlikely.) Personally, I find Verdana very difficult to read.<br><br>Escher<br><br>
Still looks like Times (which is Safari's default font) on the front page to me. Better check your default settings on your windows browser.<br><br>Surprised that Verdana is difficult to read. It's made for cross-platform, online viewing. It's rather a bulky font to deal with in any other situation, but it works well with browsers on both Mac and Windows at small sizes and anti-aliased or not--that's more than you can say for Times (which is horrible when it's aliased and small), Helvetica (which only looks good on a Mac at small sizes) or Arial (which only looks good on Widows at small sizes when it's aliased).<br><br>
We switched from the default font (as John said, it's Times in Safari) to 12 px Lucida Grande. Other font options that would show up next would be Geneva, Verdana, Arial, and Helvetica (in that order). We checked the site in all major browsers (Windows and Mac) and feel it looks much better. <br><br>
