The Software Usability Research Lab at Wichita State University has released its latest research papers. Those SURLy people always have some good solid research to share. Not sure if it applied to many of the people who read here, but if you ever need evidence as to why Time New Roman sucks or Why a column width that allows only up to 60 characters is a good thing, SURL is the place to go.
