Subject: Even the stumpers aren't sure...

Hello y'all,

I have a stumper that even the Stumpers-L
the research librarians cannot solve but one
fine soul did direct me here.

I have been exploring why educational and
training sources say that sans serif is best
for readability both on and off line
(softcopy and hardcopy) when
technical writers think that serif is best
for written documentation and san serif for
on-line (soft copy) is best.

I assure you this is not a flame generator
but to me a logic problem. A few other
researchers working on this area would
also like to know.

0       Need metanalyses on sans serif vs. serif
        fonting as it pertains to readability *and*
        tech. writing.

Key descriptors:
dyslexia
readability
fonts
technical
writing
serif
san serif

This one has me stumped.
Halp!
