    The best font for Newspaper?

    Hi all, I'm working on a Newspaper design and I'm looking for a font to use in the body text. Should be serif and with the best and easiest possible reading look. This is because it's a project for elder people.
    Could you all give me some tips? The font for the headlines is Stag!

    Thx!!

    I know this font! It's great, really! But there is a portuguese newspaper (where i'm from) that already uses this font. I'm in doubt... but it's a great tip, thanks!

    One of my major problems is the fact the some beautiful fonts have an horrible kerning space, which limits the reading in smaller font sizes. But this one, SABON, it's perfect with the kerning spaces. It goes straight to my top3! Thx!

    Cool tip but a slab font doesn't work so well in the body text and I'm already using Stag for Headlines, which is a slab font. Thx anyway!

    The Paperback series from House Industries offers a lot of choices at smaller sizes for newspaper printing.
