Hi all,

I have uploaded two more version for you to judge. 

Here's the initial version with Times New Roman plain:


The same using Times New Roman bold, which most of you seem to think is better than the original:


Here's the same using Comic Sans MS in black (my favourite among the standard fonts):


Last not least, here's the same with dark brown text:


The last one is my favourite because it goes best with the rest of the site design. But if I were to
use Comic Sans MS, I would need to ask you to test the page in all those browsers again, because
there seem to be some minor issues with this font. For example, it is supposed to not display well
in Safari if it is bold, so please search for the word "between" and check that it looks OK.

Compared to 1 and 2 the font looks much larger although I didn't change the size. Do you consider
this a benefit or a drawback? Personally, the first thing I'd do on such a page is use page zoom to
reduce the font size in order to not overly tire my eye muscles...

Please let me know what you think. Be aware that this might be the font that you will be forced to
look at for the rest of your life if you browse my site, so don't hesitate to speak up even if you
are normally in lurker mode :-)
