Easy to read = Difficult to Remember

I found this blurb on Engaget very interesting:

http://www.engadget.com/2011/01/17/princeton-study-shows-that-easy-fonts-make-things-harder-to-reme/

Web Font Service preview

I thought I’d share something we’ve been working on for months now.

It is a web font-embedding system which is based on W3C standards and
provides a secure, reliable way to use fonts whose files are hosted on
a global network of servers. When you buy a font license you will be
able to create embeddable fonts. Simply enter the URL(s) where the
font will be used and the languages to be supported, and the system
instantly generates a short block of CSS code. Paste the code into
your website, and you are ready to start using the font.

The future of displaying non-system fonts on web

Hello all,

I am wondering if any of you know of existing or upcoming
technologies, which would enable display of rich typography
(non-system fonts) on websites - without the user having the
particular font installed on his computer and still preserving the
text copy+paste function?

Arial vs Vernada?

For a better reading experience: *Arial or Verdana?*

- If Arial is smaller than Verdana, why do we use arial for the majority of
web apps?
- If there any studies or facts about that?

Comments?
