We know that Microsoft replaced its Times New Roman default font to Calibri in its Office 2007 for Word. The same with the default Arial in PowerPoint, Excel, Outlook and WordPad. Since the change, I am not sure if I like it - sometimes I do, sometime I don't.
I was working on a document form at work today and it began to irk me. It just does not look right.
Over the years, in the organisations I have worked in, the official fonts for serif and san-serif were usually Times New Roman and Arial respectively. I don't mind Times New Roman but began to hate Arial. It looks too plain and crass.
So if I compare between the more usual available fonts - so that documents sent out to the others will look the same as I prepared them - which will I use?
Arial: The fox jumps over the lazy dog
Calibri: The fox jumps over the lazy dogVerdana: The fox jumps over the lazy dog
Tahoma: The fox jumps over the lazy dog
Georgia: The fox jumps over the lazy dogCambria: The fox jumps over the lazy dogTimes New Roman: The fox jumps over the lazy dog
But instances where I need to use a san-serif font, I'll just stick to the default, i.e. Calibri. And looking at the ones above, there isn't much of a choice.
