I liked it when one of the particle detector teams at CERN used Comic Sans in their presentation of the evidence for the discovery of the Higgs Boson to make the subtle point that people who fixate on this issue would be better employed finding something worthwhile to get annoyed by.

The ability to read and interpret simple written items, such as, say, a ballot paper would seem to have assumed a higher than usual significance at this time, font notwithstanding.

Thanks Lizzie! That's an awesome resource.

Just looked at Quicksand, which is good, but I don't like the upper-case Q. I'll see what else I can find. Of course, I'm going to add to this by saying it needs to be free, in the "beer" sense.

tallhat.com is blocked in our school. The reason given was that it is categorised as 'games'.

I use BlackCat Primary in word documents, DeeGee. I think that should meet all your criteria.

I've just found Andika, which I like the look of.

I can't find an example of Blackcat Primary. I've found a font called Blackcat which is a bit handwritingy. I'm guessing that isn't it?

Got something to say?
