Style Suggestions

If you choose a Serif font for your text you should use a Sans Serif font for the headings.
Serif fonts (unlike Sans Serif fonts) have tiny tails at the ends of each letter to improve readability.
Also bare in mind that not all fonts are the same width. For example Times New Roman characters are quite narrow which means that you can fit more words on a line.
