Default Favorite font

I dunno, this just occurred to me a while back. What's your favorite font to use for whatever purpose? I have a preference for Lucida Calligraphy.

Cabrini, or whatever the new standard font in Office 2007 is called.

If not that, then Comic Sans MS.

I'm fond of Vista's font. Essentially my font choice for everything.

Comic Sans MS is absolutely terrible and needs to die in a fire. I've seen it overused numerous times. It simply doesn't ever look good on anything. Not even on what it's designed for: cartoonish letter print. There are fonts out there that can work much better than Comic Sans MS can for just about any occasion.

That there is a comic font that is ten times better than Comic Sans MS. Seriously, I actually took the incentive to uninstall Comic Sans from my computer. I may even put this stuff on posters and things that use Comic Sans:

Also, see here:

Aside from that, Segoe UI looks to be a pretty nice font for Cleartype, though I don't have it installed. Visitor TT2 BRK is a pretty neat pixel-font, if only for the userbar stuff it's associated with. And for IRC, there is of course no better font to my knowledge than FixedSys.

On the subject of Comic Sans, here's what its creator has to say about it. More here.

Consolas is a nice fixed-pitch typeface for LCD screens; otherwise, I use Courier New. Palatino is my preferred variable-pitch face.

Verdana, 10 pt.

I don't remember why I started using it, but at this point it's habit.

I love the "Hey Gorgeous" or whatver that font is called from Super Paper Mario, the "GAMECUBEN" and "GasLight" fonts. I also like the Comic Sans MS font, but not as much. >_>

I happen to like monotype corsiva because sure if you use it wrong it looks like italics, but it comes out very neat with anything formal.

When I"m in the mood for making someone mad, Webdings or jokerman is the way to go. Other than that..Times New Roman for the win! (12 pt. black)

Comic Sans is good, but when I'm writing a paper I use some other typewriter font. Comic Sans is overused now, but it looks good with my SRB2 related stories. Then again, my SRB2 stories only have one book done, and that's the beginning that has nothing to due with SRB2...
