Years ago I came across an article titled Golden Ratio Typography on Pearsonified.

 

Chris had figured out the optimal ratios for text size, line height, and paragraph width. He even created a calculator to find the optimal settings for webmasters to use with many different fonts.

 

It's well worth the read - what do you all think?

I have a strong feeling that the author is right in saying that people are subconsciously affected by different fonts on your pages.

 

Large sites should do a lot of A/B testing to find the optimal layout, fonts, colors, etc. for their pages.
