Snot and fonts

Lately I’ve been irritated trying to find a decent font to serve with my webpage, because I spend a lot of time fucking with it and I want it to look nice.

Then I reread Designed to Last. And in particular:

Your focus should be about delivering the content to the user effectively and making the choice of font be invisible, rather than getting noticed to stroke your design ego.

So I gave up and got away with using a hopefully tasteful system-font stack. It’s mine. I’m happy with it.
