Fixing Fonts

Y'all remember I've been having trouble with fonts in Firefox. After much playing around, I found that had a readable Sans-Serif font. Using View=>Page Source I found

 FONT-FAMILY: Verdana,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
 FONT-SIZE: 11px;
 COLOR: #000000;

Which means that Verdana is the font of choice for this site. Of course, this is one of Microsoft's Web Fonts, but we know how those can be installed.

So then, to finish, go to Edit=>Preferences=>Fonts & Colors and under Sans-serif select Verdana.

Now for a good Serif font. Currently I'm using Nimbus Roman No9 L, but there's got to be something better than that.
