Choosing the most readable font on the PP

Those of us who have been forced into modifying epubs to get a nice readable font, are faced with a choice. I tried many before I was completely happy.

Here's a nice informative article of the subject
http://www.webaim.org/techniques/fonts/

In the end, I have chosen a sans-serif font called Calibri that I found in my Windows installation. I wonder if this is the one Cailibre uses/installed?

Here's the css I added via calibre (based on the thread here about what works for Sony).

Code:
@font-face {
  font-family: "Constantia";
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: normal;
  src: url(res:///abook/fonts/CALIBRI.TTF);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: "Constantia";
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: normal;
  src: url(res:///abook/fonts/CALIBRIB.TTF);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: "Constantia";
  font-weight: normal;
  font-style: italic;
  src: url(res:///abook/fonts/CALIBRII.TTF);
}
@font-face {
  font-family: "Constantia";
  font-weight: bold;
  font-style: italic;
  src: url(res:///abook/fonts/CALIBRIZ.TTF);
}

body { font-family: "Constantia", serif;}

Have you chosen a favourite font? Which font do you think works best on the eInk screen?
