Problem: Illegibility of sans serif typefaces, especially when proportional spacing is used between characters.
Example: I have actually misinterpreted the following because the typeface used lacked serifs:
|Insufficiently distinguishable text|
|Double Churn||Double Chum|
Objection:To be fair, legibility problems do not only afflict san-serif type. I have a file named “bsd-style.txt” that I always first misread as “bad-style.txt” when it is displayed in the Courier font.
