body copy for knitting pattern

maudelynn's picture

I'm designing a website and downloadable pdfs of knitting patterns. I used archer and gotham for headline and subcategories respectively for online and pdfs. I used arial for body copy online. what font to use for body copy on pdfs? I know arial is based on helvetica, but it looks much too wide, and narrow much too narrow. I like gill sans but the number "1"s look like lower case "L"s. yuck.
anyone have any advice? thank you!

There is an alternate font of Gill with a different 1.
