    We use Trebuchet MS on KH-Flare, though I personally also like Arial, Tahoma, and Verdana.

    I previously use Verdana but takes too much space.

    Using 'Open Sans' as a Google font on all my forums. Love it.

    Thank you, RoldanLT.

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

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

    I quite like Tahoma, and use it on all sites I launch or acquire.

    I used to like Verdana, but like someone else stated...
    ...It looks quite big.

    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.
