As with any other business document, your goal in formatting text should be readability. Remember, in addition to dealing with neat columns of data, you also may be dealing with labels of dates or resource names wedged alongside taskbars in the chart pane. Keep the following points in mind when formatting Project text:

i Font: Choose simple sans serif fonts, such as Arial.

If you're publishing your project on the Web, consider using Verdana, which is a font created for readability online.

i Color: Will the printout be in color or black and white? Will the use of too many colors become confusing for the reader? Will certain colors, such as yellow, be difficult to read?

i Font size: Use a font size that is readable, without making it so big that the taskbar labels become too crowded.

i Effects: Avoid text effects that can make some text difficult to read (such as bold, italic, or underlining). Use such effects only to call attention to a few elements of your project.
