    Default Letter writing - Font (Verdana)

    Hello Teachers,

    Is there any particular font that we must be following to write formal letters.

    I have heard someone saying that we must use "Verdana" font to write formal letters.

    Please advise.

    That's nonsense.
    Please advise.
    Your office or workplace might have a policy about this. Before computers, something like Times was set on typewriters. This is still a popular font. However, some technical journals now print in sans serif fonts.
    Try not to use anything fancy, and you should be OK.
