a true font man would come to a full circle and realize and respect the beauty of the apparent font that was there all along. after all the hype and backlash. it becomes fresh and niche again.

Too bad Arial is nothing more than a cheap copy of Helvetica. If you're going to come full circle, then go all the way to the beginning.

How does licensing work fonts? Does buying the font package allow you to use it in publication or is there a separate royalties fee for the publication?

It depends on the company making the font. House Industries for example charges $5000-$15000 extra if you are a company making $5 million plus and you are using their font in a logo or product...

My favourite is Times New Roman. Can't beat a classic, and everyone should have it. Use it for all my documents.

You can use Helvetica in PDF documents, as it embeds the font in the document, everyone will see it correctly. Although most people probably wont know the difference between Helvetica and Arial anyway, I do of course.

Garamond and Gill Sans. Awww yeah. Helvetica is nice, but it's ridiculously overused. Trajan is also pretty cool, but pretty limited in use. Who knew styleforum had so many typography nerds?
