New font for the site

Today we have changed the main font we use on this web site (although not in the forum) from the Microsoft font Trebuchet MS to Open Sans, a font designed by Steve Matteson and commissioned by Google. It has the advantage that we no longer have to rely on you having our chosen font installed on your chosen device and it's also a cleaner and lighter font so we think it's easier to read at the same basic font size.
