Comments are off for this post.

  • Sounds about right. I have very few websites where I’d use serif

  • No, no, no. First choose a typestyle (and by the way, font does not mean typestyle) for its character, mood, effect, especially in headlines. Then on its legibility. And why wasn’t the origin of serifs mentioned?–from chiseled stone letters.
    Serif vs sans-serif? What a ridiculous choice. Like wine vs. a milk shake, choose whatever suits the mood.
