theodp writes Betty or Veronica? Mary Ann or Ginger? Proportional or Monospaced? There’s renewed interest in an old blog post by Maas-Maarten Zeeman, in which M-MZ made the case for programming with proportional fonts, citing studies that show proportional fonts can be read 14% faster than fixed-width fonts. Try it for a couple of weeks, he suggests, and you might like it too. Nowadays, Lucida Grande is M-MZ’s font of choice on OS X, and he uses Lucida Sans on Windows. Helvetica, anyone?”
