The IHT indicates that Georgia is experiencing a comeback on the web:
The Georgia revival then accelerated, as other designers adopted it as an alternative to Verdana. It is featured on several graphic design Web sites, including those of the American Institute of Graphic Arts and the Dutch type foundry Typotheque. At the other end of the spectrum, it is popular on blog design templates, which is why so many bloggers are using it.
Call me cynical, but when the pool of fonts Georgia is dominating totals all of 8 or 9, it strikes me as fairly obvious you could find just as much counter-evidence of Trebuchet or Lucida being the new trendy typefaces. Regardless, it’s interesting to see an article on web typography in the Style section of a major publication like IHT.
