Baskerville

I love the font, but superscript (e.g., for footnotes) is impossible to read.

Is it weird that all of my footnotes have a superscript in Times New Roman in the body text, despite the fact that the body text is Baskerville?

Personally I find it weird to change fonts. It is jarring to me.

I use Times for everything.

Interestingly, one of my profs in undergrad insisted we use 12 point for footnotes. He is an unusually meticulous person. I'm not sure why, exactly, he did this. It may be that he felt it acceptable, and easier to read, for papers.

Or, maybe there is something I didnt know about Turabian?

My hope is that, like, no one notices that it's switched to Times New Roman. It's just that the superscript is tiny.

That sounds tedious! What did you do that for? Screen printing for shirts and the like?
