When doing coursework and stuff I use Arial. Apparently Arial and Comic Sans are easier for dyslexics to read so we get told to use it.

My font and colour here is set to this so it never changes...

Here, this is set as my default font. In documents, I usually change my font to Georgia - so it looks the same as this.

I don't even know what this font is, but I use this on here as a set font. I also use this colour on msn, but arial narrow bold. Then on word documents I tend to write in microsoft sans serif because it makes me look like I've written more haha. So that's what I use unless I need the typography to represent something else like curly writing to show an old fashioned style etcc.

Depends how I'm feeling at the time.
It's generally either Arial or Calbri Body when I'm writing stories/essays though.

Georgia is my ultimate favorite font. I use it on everything (unless another font is required for class).

My font/color is set on here. I keep it on Georgia but tend to change the color quite a bit. :]

Garamond size four atilasized with some blue color. That's my font. (now) It always used to be atilisized and blue but only now did I find this font. I like it fancy, so it looks good, even though my person handwriting is scribles. :P

I usually type with size 10 or 12 Cosmic Sans MS on all boards/threads on websites, in a dark red color. Or I use Times new Roman.

I usually always type with this setting.

I've found out though that when I'm upset, I usually change the color to black, and I put the font size at 1 instead of 2.

I have been in love with the font "Georgia" for a very long time.

Whenever I write in Microsoft Word, though, I use Times New Roman. That's because it's the standard for MLA and APA formats, so I just use it all the time.
