in thread My preference on serifs:

Liberation font family comes with Liberation Mono, which has very distinguishable 1, l, and I. It also has a little more line space than Lucida Console, so it reads with more air.

For matching document text, there is Liberation Sans. The only problem I have with that is that there is still some strange kerning issues, but at least it is freely available for both *nix and M$Winblows, so all documents look the same. And it reads perfect for headings as well as for long running text. I now also use it for all fonts in my browser (yes, "serif" is mapped to "Liberation Sans")

With these fonts, I see no excuse left to stick to any serif font, except maybe for the occasional header in some glossy advertisement nobody wants to read anyway.


Enjoy, Have FUN! H.Merijn

    Ummm... well, it's certainly usable. Certainly the license is better than a proprietary license. My editor (ScITE) boldfaces a number of keywords, and those look (let's be charitable) amateurish.

    Fortunately, since it's "open source," there's an opening for somebody to create "ReallyLiberating" as an update to "Liberation"... :D
