Several people have written about the problem of linelength/wrap on the
Using a small font can be a big help. I experimented with various fonts (in
MSWord) to see what fonts might take the least space and be readable. I
found that Abadi MT Condensed Light took up the least space and was very
clear and readable. I use it in 8 pt size, which is very small, but quite
clear, even to these articifial eyes (implants after cataract surgery). I am
printing with a laser printer, NEC Superscript 870, but a good inkjet ought
to do well, also.
This may not be what you would want to send to a lot of people, but my
reports are mostly to aid in my own research. Obviously, the same font could
be used in a slightly larger size, and still preserve the shorter line
length as compared to say Arial or Times New Roman.
