C is for font

Details of Microsoft's Longhorn-era screen fonts have made their way our into the world. Calibri, Cambria, Candara, Consolas, Constantia and Corbel. Apparently they all begin with "C" so they'll all show up together in a font viewer, and will be easier to pick out when searching through drop-downs in Word or InDesign.

Designer Lucas de Groot has said that Calibri is "suitable for documents, e-mail, Web design, and magazines."

Looking good. As someone who still works with code every now and then, and prefers to do email in monospaced fonts, I rather like the look of Consolas. And Corbel looks like it would work well as a replacement for Tahoma or Verdana.
