Helvetica is amazing but not for web, not for reading on web. 

Check out the difference: http://screencast.com/t/TraYxbmiIc

On left is Lucida Grande and on right is Helvetica.

Changing font stack to:

  • Lucida Grande - available on all Macs and some versions of Windwos.
  • Lucida Sans - available on most Windows
  • Tahoma - available on all Windows
  • Ubuntu - available on Ubuntu - popular distro of Linux
  • sans-serif - for rest of the immortal world.

Also:

Pure black words (#000) on pure white (#FFF) are hard on eyes.

Making it a bit subtle with:

FAFAFA and #222
