Schools using Georgia

Designed in 1996 by Matthew Carter, Georgia is the serif companion to Verdana, Microsoft's workhorse of a sans-serif screen font. Georgia specifically addresses the challenges of typography displayed on a screen. When rendered at small point sizes, type on screen can become very difficult to read. Georgia tackles this problem by using wide and open counters, the white spaces in between the shapes of letters. When these spaces are too tight, the shapes become indistinguishable from one another. Georgia is very similar to Times New Roman, but takes out some of the fine details present in Times New Roman to make it suitable for screen - Georgia's serifs are somewhat flatter and blunter, for instance. Although nothing seems too odd about the name of the font, it has a somewhat curious and random derivation: it was jokingly named after a tabloid headline that read 'Alien heads found in Georgia.'
