Ok, I’ve figured out how to change the font in the post to one which is not available on the blog dashboard’s limited selection. Now I still have to figure out how to get it into the layout html permanently, so that I do not have to go and html-edit each post. This font (Rockwell) is one of my favourites. This is one of the few serif fonts which in my opinion has a modern appearance. Usually serif fonts like Times New Roman appear old fashioned. Generally serif fonts are easier to read in print and sans-serifs easier on-screen. This one does not do to bad on screen in my mind. I think it may be because the serifs are angular and square. I am not a font & typesetting expert, but I know what I like and I always look in Advertisements (TV, Print, Billboards) at what type of font they use. The ‘GTI’ sign on the newest VW Golfs is definitely from the Rockwell font family for example.
