@JanusBahsJacquet To ad­dress your ques­tion, I’ve added a sec­tion ex­plain­ing why Ari­al is very un­nat­u­ral to pair with Ge­or­gia. Yes, we had it be­fore, but now we have it in spades, mega spades, and megadeath spades. Every­thing Bringhurst says about Hel­veti­ca ap­plies in equal mea­sure to Ari­al. It’s...grotesque. :) It al­so lacks text fig­ures, small cap­i­tals, and all the rest of the things you want from a prop­er font fam­i­ly in or­der to do rea­son­able type­set­ting with it. Another prob­lem is that Ge­or­gia’s bold is Tᴏᴏ Bᴏʟᴅ, which is es­pe­cial­ly worse on Macs.

comment Determiner question
@Araucaria I worry that you risk doing far more harm than good here. I urge you to carefully consider the asker’s other closed question and its comments. As you can read there, this asker lacks a basic grasp of essential grammatical analysis. Given that level of complete unfamiliarity with even traditional analysis, such askers will be severely ill-served by us if because of what they have read here, they on their English exams start calling articles “pronouns’ and get those all marked wildly wrong by their grader or automatic grading program.

@JonEricson Even though Catija linked to it, I had not read the MSE post of yours that she re­ferred to last Fri­day. Without read­ing close­ly, let alone fol­low­ing her in­struc­tions and link, I had care­less­ly as­sumed that her link was in­stead to this old­er post of yours there. This mis­take is why I took um­brage: I wrong­ly thought I was be­ing point­ed at an ex­ist­ing gener­ic re­sponse, not a new, spe­cif­ic re­ply with tech­ni­cal ex­pla­na­tions. Please ac­cept my apolo­gies. Fur­ther re­marks I will post as a re­ply there.

@Catija Are you saying that SE intends to force a Sans face on EL U all over the place where we used to have a Serif one, that this is by deliberate intent and so SE refuses to fix this? If so, then please don’t call it status-bydesign because that implies actual design principles were involved when they weren't. Call it at most status-wontfix. If I wanted that look and feel, I'd go to a beta site or Stack Overflow. Basically, we are all Stack Overflow now: please don't expect us to like that. I certainly do not. I'm not as interested in participating anymore and I hope you can see why.
