    I prefer – Verdana or Tahoma mostly. Not sure what would women prefer, I've never noticed.

    My personal faves are Trebuchet & Tahoma. I have noticed men prefer Arial & Times New Roman. [I attribute this to their laziness, coz most applications has default font as Arial :-p]

    So far so good. One man prefers Verdana, one woman prefers Trebuchet. Keep the comments coming, folks.

    It depends on where I am! At work, it is Verana for internal work, and Arial for the Ministerial and formal papers etc..

    But at home, its Comics Sans all the way!!!

    Depends on what I'm doing. I like sanserif fonts for some projects, but for most formal things, like business letters, my resume, etc., I like the heft of a serif font. Two of my websites/blogs are in a sanserif font, one is serif, but that's to preserve an old-timey feeling. I guess the answer is that, for things that are clearly of the web, sanserif, for things that emulate printed material, serif.

    I would say I like Comics Sans the most. My second choice would be Times New Roman.
