I will admit that I once was a font-aholic. I loved using new and exciting fonts for everything, including papers and assignments. And yes…Comic Sans, Curlz MT and Papyrus were my favorite.
I can now appreciate the standard typeface of Times New Roman 12 and Helvetica, which Gurak and Lannon suggest to use. However, it makes me wonder, when do we use those other fonts? Are they just for graphic designers? Am I ever allowed to use the font of my choice? And does my audience really enjoy reading the same Times New Roman on every document?
