Well, being a bit of an imagist, Iíve always been particularly fond of Wingdings. Also, itís almost a reference to Harry Potterís hometown!

I like the Multinational Ext Font.

I've always been partial to font that has a lot of I's in it and H's and J's. But I’m weird like that. But why do the j's look like i's and the i's look like capital i's and don't even get me started on the h's. Come to think of it I really hate this font. I'll never use it again.

Nevermind...

I've always liked Script MT Bold, although Jokerman, and Fiolex Girls are fun

You can read it easily if you go to office party & put your cursor over the title of this thread.

Darnit! And I went to all the trouble of copying it and pasting it into Word, highlighting it, and changing the font. There's 3 minutes I'll never get back. sheesh.

I like Times New Roman. Very traditional, easy to read.

I use Times New Roman for my writing, but I like to use Verdana here, because it is bigger.

For flyers or fun stuff, I like Comic Sans - its simple to read and yet "fun"

For frightening flyers - I like to use a font called "Maestro" -- but it's not available here.

My favorite font is anything large and legible.

Prestige Elite 12 points for hardcopy submissions. You can almost hear that IBM Selectric ball flying across the page, and it's a treat for a weary editor's eyes while adhering to standard manuscript formatting.

Anything editors like tickles me plumb to death, which means I always use Courier 12.

I'm kind of partial to Caslon or Garamond for printed material, Verdana for online stuff. I know, Im boring...

I like comic sans too.
I also like sylfaen (italicized) for chatting.

I always use Courier 12 too because that's what publishers want.

BUT:

I do like Trebuchet MS. I never use it, I'm just saying I like the way it looks.

I like Century Gothic, as well.

And Garamond.

I once found a font called "Monica". It's not too flash, but it was created from Monica Lewinsky's handwritten notes.

Fonts are fun to play with, I guess, but it doesn't take long before I think, "Look. I just want to read this; don't make it difficult, okay?"

It's always been Comic Sans for me!
