Open Office PDF Font Test Poll

Attached is a .pdf file formatted for the reader using Open Office. I formatted the same page with 16 different Open Office fonts, to see how they look on the reader (because Times Roman is too thin, and even the Swiss font doesn't look like the Swiss font in RTF files).

Please feel free to download and try out; I'm curious which fonts people prefer.

I've set it up so you can vote for more than one font if there are several that you like.

Note: The pages are formatted at 4.5" x 6", with 2mm margins all around; I prefer the sizing to the 90mm x 120 mm equivalent (3 5/8 x 4 7/8, the actual dimensions of the screen).

Sorry about the size of the file; PDF files get big when you start embedding 16 fonts!

I voted for Georgia, as that has been my standard e-book reading font for a while. You might want to take a look at Constantia, one of the new Vista typefaces.

I'm definitely up for more suggestions; the attached .pdf file is just a smattering of what comes with Open Office.

Have you checked out Constantia as part of a .pdf document on the reader? That's really what I'm interested in finding, is a good font to create .pdf files with. So far, it's bookman through LaTeX, and Verdana from Open Office...
