Unholy Fonts

We've all submitted a piece to a journal and had that moment of deep contemplation where we consider what font will help our work stand out from the hundreds of submissions that an editor recieves. The answer: When in doubt, use 12pt Times New Roman. You want your work, not your font to stand out. Nothing annoys an editor more than sexy fonts. Typies (thanks gallink) has an interesting post about fonts and their affect on our experience as readers. You wouldn't think it was that deep, but it is. Keep it simple.
