the fact of being easily readable The keyboarders complained about the legibility of the manuscript.

COMMENT: Legibility is one of the requirements of text matter. Text is more easily read in roman serif typefaces than in italic or in sans faces, and should have line spacing of about 2 points between the lines (i.e. there should be more spacing between the lines than between words). Sans faces and italic are less legible, and closely spaced lines, or lines which are irregularly spaced, are more difficult to read than lines of closely spaced words with extra spacing between the lines.
