in reply to My preference on serifs:

It depends on where I'm writing! Readability is more important than any style consideration (exceptions apply, of course), so that will drive my choice. Some fonts are easier to read on paper than they are on the (relatively low resolution) screen. Google "serif usability" to read all about it.

As an aside, I think it's hilarious that we're still using fonts whose designs were influenced by the fact that they were originally rendered by chisels.
