Are there particular fonts that are the best to write essays with, or make the people who mark it think more highly of it?

(My answer to this question at Quora.com)

Many schools and publications explicitly specify that Times New Roman is the font to use. However, if you do have a choice Georgia is a superior alternative—less dense, and more readable.
But my favourite, by far, if you have it, is Cambria. Just a pleasure to read, so likely to make your assessor more favourably inclined towards your work.
