Legend has it that studies have been done showing that serif fonts are easier to read. I would guess this has something to do with providing a more distinctive shape for the eye to grok. <<<<<< Is there some kind of proto-ur-stuff in the language organ somewhere that dates back to the days of cuneiform? ;) PS: Fabian also used the term <grok>, while we were in London, and I think I understand it. What's the etymology of it? ************************************************************* This email and any files transmitted with it are confidential and intended solely for the use of the individual or entity to whom they are addressed.
