Hi Frank

Yes you are on the right track, it does look better provided that font smoothing
is applied otherwise pixelation makes the italics font harder to read.

I don't mind using serif fonts but others say sans serif fonts are better for
onscreen viewing.  You might be able to overcome this by just using a larger
font size.  Shifting to a san serif font might clash with your navigation
buttons down the side which look fine.  So just raising the font size might be
the most convenient solution.

I cannot make it any darker. It is black already. But I could make it bold.

Do y'all think that this


would be better than this?


Or would you prefer an altogether different font? It must be one that is part of
the standard
installation of Mac OS, Windows and the misc. Linux flavours. Unfortunately,
there aren't that many
of those. I was tempted to use NuCasual, but unfortunately this isn't part of
any standard OS.
Although it would look perfect...
