The New Wave of British Heavy Metal, or NWOBHM /nˈwɒbm/', was a heavy metal movement that started in the late 1970s, in Britain, and achieved international attention by the early 1980s. After Sounds editor Alan Lewis coined the term, journalist Geoff Barton first used it in the May 1979 issue of Sounds magazine as a way of describing a second wave of heavy metal bands that emerged in the late 1970s during the period of punk rock's decline and the dominance of new wave music. The movement developed as a reaction in part to the decline of early heavy metal bands such as Led Zeppelin, Deep Purple and Black Sabbath. NWOBHM bands toned down the blues influences of earlier acts, incorporated elements of punk (and in the case of Iron Maiden combined it with Progressive Rock), increased the tempo, and adopted a "tougher" sound, taking a harder approach to its music. It was an era directed almost exclusively at heavy metal fans and is considered to be a major foundation stone for the extreme metal genres; acts such as the American metal band Metallica cite NWOBHM bands like Iron Maiden, Saxon, Motörhead and Diamond Head as a major influence on their musical style.

I voted "Other (specify in a comment)", because I like too much Sylfaen Font:it looks like Times New Roman, but I think it's brighter.
To tell you the truth after your comment I changed the Verdana Font to 11px from 12px and there was a big change!!!
I guess I am a little crazy or size really does matters? (:D)

I have to check out Sylfaen!
Yeah the size matters when it comes to Verdana :P you can test it yourself holding ctrl + scroll on the mouse.
I really like the font but 11px are a bit small and 12px almost too big. I wish there was something between.

I guess you are right:Sylfaen looks better in 13px or even in 14px and bold!(I was using Sylfaen font when I was making covers for my CD-R's).
Since HMR is your "child" do what you think is best for it!
I didn't want to cause you any trouble, you know that!
I will have to accept Verdana (it's not that bad anyway):I'll just "switch" it to 11px and everything is going to be fine!

Comic Sans is the work of the Devil.

Verdana is doing the job just fine.

Arial and Lucida are decent too.

Times New Roman and Courier New look better on paper than on screen.

The rest...meh.

Verdana is fine by me. My 2nd choice would be Trebuchet MS, but only because it's so similar to Verdana...

Maybe you could add a couple of themes with font variations.
