I like to use Comic Sans MS as my reading font. But the transliterated doesn't work well due to the marks. What is your favorite font to use that works well across the board?

Dewayne,

Normally I just use Arial.

I've tried them all but for readability, it's Arial. (and of course, like you mentioned, some fonts don't do the characters very well.)

I like Ebrima:

 

 

 

It seems smooth, pleasing to the eye, nice to read, and so far, I have not found a glitch.

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

Not sure what you mean.  Here are two examples from the Dictionary of Jesus and the Gospels:

 

 

seem fine to me.  what exactly are you experiencing?  Is your font too small to see the superscript letters/symbols?

 

 

I like Apples.  Especially Honeycrisp.

I just remember running across it a few weeks back and since a fonts thread came up I responded. I will try to find an example.
