I keep wondering whether your handwritten notes have little dots in place of all the serifs.

Might I suggest Tahoma or Verdana? Both clean and easy to read. Or perhaps Century Gothic - lovely roundness to that one, a bit reminiscent of a teacher's best chalkboard handwriting.

You may be tempted by the exotic wiles of Papyrus as you resolve to look for something with less whimsy and more old-school gravitas, but don't be fooled. Papyrus is a lying bastard.

Best of luck!
Mrs. Brightpearl
