It has been found that a serif font with normal punctuation and spacing

Well, yes and no. In reading text on paper, readers in several
European countries tend to do better with sans-serif text than text
with serifs. Most people in the U.S. prefer text with serifs. But when
it comes to reading text on a screen (especially in medium-to-low
resolutions and almost always with small text) most readers tend to do
better with sans-serif text (serifs tend not to display well).
