What?! You brush aside both Ray Charles AND the Beatles in one short
sentence, and expect to go unchallenged? I think not! A duel! Peace
signs at dawn! :-)
Seriously, although I'm usually no fan of Comic Sans Serif, in this case I
think it looks good. I have to admit that before I saw your page in the
Comic font I would've been inclined to recommend Verdana or Geneva. Now,
I'd leave it open. Another surprise for me is that the brown works too.
I share Heinrichs' point about New Times Roman being pretty much the
universal font just now, but I reckon Comic is a close second in ubiquity.
As an aside and I hope as an encouragement, I find that although I've
resisted the temptation so far to own an eMate, your page has left me with a
strange urge to get one and then take it apart and do the hinge fix! Now I
know full well what an idiotic idea that last bit in particular is, and I
intend to resist that urge, but there you have it. At the very least I'd
like to watch it being done. Part of that urge is attributable to my
long-standing love of taking things apart and fixing them, but part is
attributable to the fact that you've created an interesting, clear and
well-written page. I enjoyed reading it, and I interacted with what I read.
