We don't actually have an official body text font (I tend to use
Liberation Sans when laying out body text), maybe we should pick a
specific one and add it to our brand guidelines.
What's the target?
* newspapers like layout, targeted at print => best choice would
be Times or derivatives (serifs, thin, perfect for multicolumn
* web presentation => I personally like URW Gothic and similar,
sans serif is a must
* standard printed text => something like Computer Modern (thought
that might look too scientific, URW Bookman is an example from
the other end of spectrum), generally serifs are a need plus it
needs to be less condensed than Times
* posters => I have no experience here, but sans-serif font would
be a better choice, should probably have glyphs that look well
at bigger sizes (Droid is not a good choice, it's rather
thin/condensed, designed for small size)
Do we have any advised complementary fonts with CJK glyphs (I believe we
have quite a solid user base in China, Japan and Korea as well)?
