This site was designed with Microsoft's Georgia and Verdana fonts in mind. The site should render fine with other fonts, but if you do not have Georgia and Verdana on your system, you should download and install them. Georgia and Verdana are free and specifically designed to be easily readable on-screen, even at small type sizes. Both fonts also print beautifully.

You can download Georgia and Verdana for Macintosh and Windows by clicking here. If you already use Internet Explorer, both fonts were installed by default.
