When you download it, the picture appears in the clipart window, and you can easily highlight it, and then copy (Ctrl + C) and then go to the "Page plus 8" windows and press (Ctrl + V) to import it onto the display. I will probably use Times New Roman, as it is the easiest to read, and the default font, that is not that boring. See below. I will then export the thing as a picture, after highlighting it, so it can be used universally. Appendix Trebuchet MS - Nice font, easy-to-read, and practical. Tempus Sans ITC - Sophisticated, but not that clear first time, better for wine lists. Times New Roman - Very good, clear, definitely using this, it is very clear for all ages. Verdana - Big, very clear, but it does not look attractive. Arial - Easy-to-read, but plain, better for kid's stories. Book Antiqua - Very Attractive, but still clear, definitely using this. Calisto MT - Much like Times New Roman, but more kid-like. Comic Sans MS - Very plain and young. Graphite Light ATT - Sophisticated and cool, but too narrow.
