    Fav font? Depends upon intended use. A typesetter or graphic designer with print experience would explain the reasons, but it's important to know when to use serif or sans serif to ensure clarity and legibility. Further, fixed pitch fonts like Courier New and others are highly-suited for representing column information, and this includes the information conveyed to a programmer at a glance that comes from being able to readily see where tab stops align within a column of text for code blocks.

    All that to say the poll is meaningless to me without understanding the context.

    Voted Verdana out of the ones listed.

    The fonts I like and use most (also in-game) are Calibri and Consolas.

    What about Vera Serif? I like that font due to it's equal width characters.

    Verdana is THE font for me. I'm not sure why though :( Maybe because when I make a home page it's in Verdana by default ? IDK..

    I voted for Comic Sans because I hate it a billion times more than I like the others.

    Consolas for fixed-width, Calibri 1.0 for basicaly everything else.

    I can sort of understand the anti-comic sans people, even if they are taking it overboard. The typeface has gotten over-used. But then again the same can be said of Arial the Helvetica wanna-be. ;) Font selection influences the perceived meaning and tone of text and a lot of times comic sans gets used in places where it is a bit jarring. Besides type setting is part of design which is mostly subjective so is something fun to get worked up over. Proper kerning, optical vs visual margins, widow and orphan lines, &c. so many little details that can drive us crazy when someone does them "wrong."

    IMO - http://bancomicsans.com/!

    Heh, not really. I've just always thought that people who want to get a font banned are funny.
