I've always liked Verdana's x-height but not the wide spacing between  
the letters, a la monospaced typefaces. Georgia, not so much. I think  
the best work of Carter is Bell Centennial, but he was definitely  
very inventive when working to overcome technical limitations.

Why not PowerPC? If I'm not completely loosing my mind, which is  
quite easily possible, you want a machine 10x faster than what you're  
trying to emulate. Since the earliest Macintosh that could run OS 9  
ran at 66MHz, you could very easily run Sheep Shaver with OS 9.1.  
Hell, even the G3 minitowers ran at 333MHz which could easily be  
emulated with enough RAM.

In full disclosure, I haven't fiddled around with emulators for quite  
some time, so my speed times ten thing could be completely wrong.
