    A question from a colleague of mine that I couldn't answer - what font do the BBC use for their website?

    Gill Sans is the corporate font, one assumes for the (quite smart) reason that Eric Gill created the sculpture of Arial which sits above the door to broadcasting house.

    Great sculptor, great typographer but, as we now know, a ferocious pervert.
