I write the review out on Word first so I HAVE to choose a font!
Just for the record, the font the board uses is Trebuchet MS. However, choosing this font in Word won't get rid of the tags you get from copying/pasting from Word.

A humble suggestion that will make a lot of people happy, and perhaps prevent Trekker4747's apoplexy. :
Yeah, I... HEY!

FWIW. I've done some "thread bombs" and "photo manips" in Paint Brush using the Veranda for the board's font and the result is pretty close. Infact, checking just now:



Star Trek - Board Font
A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

I think the board's font is clearly Verdana, the "M" is more notably "closed" on the top in Trebuchet, the "S" wider in Verdana, the letters are also wider in general, the "Q"'s curly is more on the bottom and "dangles" more in "Verdana" than it is in "Trebuchet" and there are serifs on the "J" and the "I" (Trebuchet is sans-serif.)

Both fonts above were done in a 12-point size, unbolded, in MS Paint.
