Recently, someone took a look at my documents and recommended I do a
comparison between Arial (which is what I was using) and Helvetica.

So, I printed out a few pages of text (including mostly titles and
headings) at the various sizes that I was using, in both fonts - and
Helvetica came out looking much better in both print and on-screen!

Needless to say, I converted all my text that used Arial to Helvetica.
