What's your favorite font?

If you'd like, you can categorize: serif, sans serif, other.

I generally like Tahoma. Kristen ITC is good too.

Also, this is a pretty cool free fonts web site:

Bizarro. Not a very practical font, but a very cool one. It is so complex that it wouldn't even display correctly on Windows 3.x. As you increased the point size, more and more letters would begin turning into empty boxes as Windows ran out of resorces for displaying them. Look for BIZARRO_.TTF on Kazaa.

New Courier because it and Times New Roman are the standards (for turning in work at school etc) and you get a lot more pages out of courier.

Not really a favorite, but I've always stuck with Times New Roman.
