font-desc{When sans serif fonts emerged in the 19th century, they were used mostly at headline sizes, not xref{body text} sizes. But modern typography uses sans serifs at all sizes.

By contrast, xref{Neutral}, xref{Bernini Sans}, and xref{Cooper Hewitt} are new designs that aim for svelte plain-spokenness, but without being bland retreads of earlier designs. Cooper Hewitt, designed for the Smithsonian, is free.}
