    Great question, I would bet you get as many different answers as the thread gets viewers.

    Personally, I like verdana, I dont know that it could be considered a "cool font" however.

    All the fonts mentioned above are 'standard' windoze fonts.

    Its not a good idea to use fonts that you have to download, because if your visitors do not have the fonts they will not be able to see them.

    but... www.fonts.com has downloads.

    If you do decide to use "download fonts," make sure you try to limit them for Images, banners, navs, etc... That way, you can use that cool font you like as a title for your site, and its simply part of the image. No worries of if your users have that font on their system or not.

    It's usually a good idea to use a standard font for the actualy content, as that those "funky fonts" can be difficult on the eyes when you attempt to read them.
