Font

A font can be the object in a church which holds holy water for splashing onto those being baptised, a reservoir for oil in a lamp, or an old-fashioned word for spring or fountain.

The font is also the typeface in which something is printed or appears online. There are lots to choose from – Times New Roman if you want to be taken seriously, Comic Sans if you don't and Bickham Script should you wish to be incomprehensible.

Which fonts do you like best?

I usually use Arial, i think - will have to check!

For most of my writing, I use Times New Roman in 12 point.

If you're asking about writing fonts - I always write in Times New Roman, unless a publication specifically asks for something else. :)

I stick to Times New Roman 12 pt when writing, unless a different font has been specified.

I made a letter template for myself, that uses the Lucida Handwriting font.

Hi Patsy - love the different calligraphy fonts available ... but the ones in religious places evoke many memories ... cheers Hilary

@ Liz – That's the one most frequently asked for in competitions (where a preference is given). Must be an easy one to read.

@ Rosemary, Carol and Susan – I go for TNR 12 pt too (unless something else is requested.)

@ Hilary – I love illuminated manuscripts – but I guess that's not quite the same thing.

Californian FB makes a nice clean cover font

@ Henry – Named after the place in America?

@ Mac – That's an appropriate one for you.
