When do you use weird fonts? I pretty much stuck with Times New Roman untill the Word default became Calibri. Verdana was good for papers because I could write in 12 point but it would be bigger. Other than that, I almost never use different fonts.

Has anyone here ever had the balls (or ignorance) to turn in a paper in some kind of unusual font?

Share all your font related stories and opinions.

I'm missing something regarding that comic - totally don't get it... but I find it annoying when Hitler is portrayed as angry and demanding, while Goebbels is portrayed as his servant who only did as he was told. It was pretty much the direct opposite of that, in reality.

Anyway. Fonts. I used to try to play with the margins and use slightly bigger fonts that were similar to Arial... never got away with it.

I had no idea the default font had changed. What a crazy world.

Garamond. I have no idea why Times New Roman is universally favoured over it.

It sucks that there're just a few fonts that'd deal well with all special Polish characters. Really really sucks.

Trebuchet MS is the one for me.

For studies I usually use Arial though, but for portfolio's and websites and such I often choose Trebuchet MS, a bit more stylish.

Lucida Grande for websites. The 'M's in Trebuchet MS creep me out a little.
