It is always advisable to use the common fonts such as Times Roman, Verdana, Arial, Sans Serif etc as these are supported by most browsers. \vIt is also good practice to use bolding to identify specific information and where appropriate, colors to highlight certain information. Always use colors that can be easily read and when is doubt use a white background and black text.
