\"Typefaces
The shape of the letters in which text is typeset can make a big difference to the image which is conveyed. Typefaces fall into one of three main categories: serif, sans-serif and decorative.
Serifs are the little tabs on the corners of the letters. Sans-serif typefaces like Helvetica do not have these: they appear plainer, and can be designed in bolder versions than serif typefaces.

Generally, serif typefaces are more \'traditional\' and authoritative, while sans-serif faces have a more modern or technological feel. In a broadsheet, a bold serif type like Times Bold may be used for headlines.\"
