One more thing. Take a look at the numbers. Some fonts have "lower-case" oldstyle numbers, where some numbers descend below the lines and have different heights. Others have lining numbers that look like capital letters. Figure out if/how this affects your font choice seeing this in the middle of a sentence. Also, there is the issue of whether you need monospace numbers for charts, but I would not eliminate a font that doesn't have this. I'd use a second font for this.
