A look at different fonts for headlines and body copy. Headlines are currently 28px and body text is 16px with a line-height of 1.5. I like Typekit.

Body Text Samples

In William F. Buckly Jr.’s book, Let Us Talk of Many Things, there is a funny story about President Ronald Reagan wanting to give Buckley a medal, while on vacation together at the beach. So he feigned drowning in the water, and WFB prompty “rescued” him. Medal awarded. Here is some strong/bold text and here are some numbers, to see if old-style numerals are used: 1974-1996. We’ll use a span with a class="smallcaps" to give an example of how faux small-cap text—usually for acronyms such as NRA and CIA—is rendered. Finally, here is a link to some random website.
