    Good fonts for banners?

    What fonts do you guys like to use in banners? I'm trying to find a good font for a simple/clean blog (probably using css) and am not really sure what to try. If it doesn't come with windows a link to where I can d/l and/or buy it would be helpful.

    Oh, here's a few sites that have a style similar to what I am going after.

    Well the font that I use on whitespace and I believe web-graphics uses it also is Arial. It just seems to look better when you don't have a system that has font-smoothing as OSX does.

    Another good windows font for text is Trebuchet MS.

    I'm a keen user of Windows sans-serif fonts.

    I normally fluctuate between Arial, Tahoma & Verdana on the majority of my websites depending on my mood at the time. I think Tahoma & Verdana print better than Arial as well!
