The main site is going thru a makeover and I was wondering if the font I am using on the main site works on the message bord? It's Trebuchet MS

Trebuchet MS was designed by Vincent Connare in 1996, is a humanist sans serif designed for easy screen readability. Trebuchet takes its inspiration from the sans serifs of the 1930s which had large x heights and round features intended to promote readability on signs.

Your opinions please....

I think any of those options you're safe with. But for someone who has worked in the media and has had to make many presentations...the only font used in such presentations was ARIAL...But I think I like Trebuchet MS better.

It's amazing what Google spits out when you enter the search term "Trebuchet MS". Did you actually think I was a font fanatic?

You can adjust the time in your "User CP" just change it to EST -5 with DST enabled.

No never did find any of the sub forums, sorry.

And I've been told that Arial is supposedly the most easily read font for on-screen reading. That's what I use exclusively.

Here's a line repeated in each of the three fonts in the poll.

ARIAL - I find Arial much easier on the eyes than any of the other fonts.

Trebuchet MS - I find Arial much easier on the eyes than any of the other fonts.

Verdana - I find Arial much easier on the eyes than any of the other fonts.

Well, I'll have to admit that Verdana looks pretty decent also.
