If you have access to the WebAim list and its
archives -- there was just a big discussion. At
least I think it was there. Apparently there is
some research, there are better and worse. But
when you get into low vision, and other
disabilities, all bets are off. Each condition
and individual are different. Do some googleing
and I am sure you can find some of the
research. Other factors can also be important,
contrast, size, letter separation, line spacing etc.
