Objective 1: Picking a better typeface
If you’re using Times New Roman, Word’s default typeface, we should change it to something different. Times doesn’t read well on-screen and lacks typographic subtleties such as non-lining numbers. Because it’s available on virtually all computers and designed to be readable on on-screen, try Garamond instead.
Times New Roman, Cambria, Helvetica are also acceptable
At that same point size, Garamond appears smaller than Times New Roman, so you’ll want to set the font size a point or two larger. Just make sure you are able to fit all content on one page.
