There's a new font on the block, and it's called Vera
, and get this... it's free
There are four monospace and sans faces (normal, oblique, bold, bold oblique) and two serif faces (normal and bold).
It's a pretty good looking font that is well proportioned and is meant to replace Verdana, and I'd guess that it could if people were inclined to download it in droves. Which they won't, which means Verdana
will be our sans-serif choice for years to come.
