"Making ideas harder to read may make them easier to retain"

My friend sent me [[http://www.princeton.edu/main/news/archive/S28/82/93O80/index.xml?sectio...|this]] article about a study where students who "[reviewed] material in hard-to-read fonts did better on regular classroom assessment tests than did their randomly selected counterparts reading the same material in easier fonts".

Sort of interesting. But I'm sure we'll question the generalizability and their definitions of easy-to-read and hard-to-read fonts.
