It is a serif typeface. Serif typefaces are more legible then nonserif typefaces that many people use these days.
Gotta jump in on this. Serif typefaces are considered more readable in print material but for on screen application, sans-serif is still the more readable typeface.

Black ink/color, white paper/screen is still black on white. The serifs help the eye flow across the letters.

I only have a BS from the preeminent University for Graphic Arts in the USA.

What do you have?

Your opinion is different then the facts presented by my professors.

Again what college degree do you possess to make you en expert?

You confuse what you like and what is best. Though that is ok. You keep posting the way you do.

The way I do not pass comment on why you post the way you do. Find something worth while to keep yourself occupied.

Yeah, no college degree here. Oh, I've had excellent design training and have a decent amount of real world experience with in the past ten years, but no degree. So all that doesn't matter, I presume.

I don't know how old you are but it seems to me like maybe your BS was earned 20 plus years ago?

With the high screen resolutions of today's world, there is not so much of a difference between the readability of serifs and sans-serifs but it is somewhat bothersome that you appear to not even know about the difference between on screen and off screen design and the effect low resolution screens have had on the typeface debate since, well, the advent of the internet.

Seeing as you have a BS from the Preeminent Graphic Arts school in the USA...
