Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

I would like to know the name of the body font used in the Programmers Stack Exchange site. I was keen on using it in my blog.

PS: Sorry, I do not know if this is the place to ask this, but I felt that the question didn't fit in any of the programming sites.

edit: Font here I mean the font of the question body, not of the header/title section.

Are you talking about the body text or the logo text? – Cody Gray Jun 1 '11 at 7:04

The handwritten font in the title, top nav and section header is House Whiteboard. Yes, it is actually Hugh Laurie's handwriting. ("It's Not Lupus!")

From Site Design, round 2

You can read about the progression of the design via the three main posts surrounding it:

You should be able to find out what you need to know via those posts, or by analyzing the CSS and HTML. If not, you can probably leave a comment on one of those posts asking for more specific information.

-1 - that's clearly not what the OP asked. He's looking for the font used in the logo. – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Jun 1 '11 at 6:53
That is what I thought too, but I reckon OP must have forgotten to mention it. " programmers stack exchange site" is kinda vague IMO. – Reno Jun 1 '11 at 6:58
Haha there's absolutely nothing "clear" about the question. – Cody Gray Jun 1 '11 at 7:03
