Notice anything different in the first three lines??

Well, the fonts are different. The first one is Verdana (my personal favorite), the second one is Times New Roman. These two fonts are used very commonly.

The third one is Garamond.

What is special about Garamond? A US teenager, Suvir Mirchandani, has analyzed and proposed that the usage of Garamond font, instead of Times New Roman in all US Official documents will result in a saving of 400 Million USD. The reason :- Each character is lighter and thinner with the proposed font. 

Isn't that a very simple and interesting proposition?

We need people like Suvir to come up with bright, intelligent ideas to create a better future for all of us.
