Serif's Up! What? Oh, okay, I'll put away my board. Back to work in my serif's cube.

Depends on the weight of the font, too. My company mandates the use of an abominable sans-serif 44-pt font called Arial Black for all presentations, and it's all squished together into unreadability.

Personally, for presentation and docs, I like to use a wide serif font called (on M$) Bookman Old Style, with a few tenths of a point more width between characters. Even better, Railroad Roman. Of course, I grew up loving trains, so that's a no-brainer.

For code, however, I want a monospaced sans-serif font. I like ScITE as an editor because I can chose from a wide variety of fonts. I agree there's a definite issue with character confusion; haven't found a solution for that.

Title:
Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":



  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
