    What's your favourite font for reading Russian?

    Just curious what some of the good Cyrillic fonts are, and what fonts people prefer.
    For reading English, I prefer Calibri, Verdana or Times New Roman.

    I don't think Cyrillic script looks very good in either of those... What are the alternatives?

    Times New Roman is a standard font for a long time for any office documents.

    But font choosing for reading is quite a personal preference. Forums about e-readers are full of wars about what font is the best.

    I prefer Verdana for reading both English and Russian from a screen. But I use Arial, Calibri, Courier New (especially in software development environments), Tahoma, and Times New Roman of course (it's used in most documents) too.
    I'd be grateful if you pointed out my mistakes.
