Verdana

Verdana is a humanist sans-serif typeface designed by Matthew Carter for Microsoft Corporation, with hand-hinting done by Thomas Rickner, then at Monotype. Demand for such a typeface was recognized by Virginia Howlett of Microsoft's typography group. The name "Verdana" is based on verdant (something green), and Ana (the name of Howlett's eldest daughter).

    • What are the Best Fonts for Email? What Are Email Safe Fonts?

      You’ve all heard my complaints on the lack of advancements in email support over the years so I won’t spend (too much) time whining about it. I only wish that one large email client (app or browser), would break out of the pack and try to fully support the latest versions of HTML and CSS. I have no doubt that tens of millions of dollars are being spent by companies to fine-tune their emails.
