Everyone knows Comic Sans is a faux pas :)

I think I’m very fond of most serif fonts at the moment, like Georgia.

Ha! I only recently heard of the Comic Sans faux-pas myself :)

On my Macs, I like to use Skia; I haven’t found any I really like on Windoze, but since that’s work stuff anyway, I stick with Arial.
