Use No Fonts

Okay. So we’re not supposed to use Arial for web design. Nor are we allowed to use Verdana. And now, as of last week, we’re not supposed to use Trebuchet either. So, what are we left with? Times?

Also, while you’re at DesignByFire, check out this week’s Design Eye for the Usability Guy, their cluster redesign of Herr Jakob’s latest Alertbox.

    Don’t believe everything you read. Arial and Verdana are just fine for web pages. For that matter I don’t see a huge problem with Trebuchet eithter.

    The Arial peice doesn’t say a thing about not using it. And the Verdana piece isn’t very well argued at all.

    Personally I find Verdana a very readable font.

    In any case, you should feel “allowed” to use whatever the hell font you wish. It all comes down to the project, but as I’m very fond of saying — there are no rules in Web design.

    You’re still free to use the Rayman font ( ) and the ESRB Ratings font ( ) anywhere and everywhere.
