Yep. And so, how do we determine when the choice of font is affecting how something we write is perceived by the reader? Or for that matter choices in layout? I know font choice has to be involved on how well an argument is received, but how can I figure out how to control it. I always knew when I was in college that my grades came out well in part, because I had my papers typed on the best electric typewriter made at the time. The same has to be true in some way with how positions in articles are presented. If only there were studies.
