Thank you, RoldanLT.

Question, where are you placing the following line of code?

Code:
<link href='http://fonts.googleapis.com/css?family=PT+Sans' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

Code:
<noscript><style>.JsOnly, .jsOnly { display: none !important; }</style></noscript>

Tahoma is my choice now. Looks great and it's not too big.

No, it's hard to read some words. Like letters are too close. Switched to Trebuchet MS.
