Why does font matter in Excel?

Sans serif fonts are made up of mainly straight lines. Sans serif fonts are easier to read. On the other hand, serif fonts have short strokes that project from the ends of the main stroke that make up a character. Serif typefaces often work well in headings and personal stationery, but they can be difficult to read in tables that contain detailed data and long descriptions.
Suggested san serif fonts include APHont, Antique Olive, Tahoma, Verdana, Helvetica, Arial, Futura Light Bolded, and Gotham Rounded.
