What is the Candara® font?

Candara is a casual humanist sans with verticals showing a graceful entasis on stems, high-branching arcades in the lowercase, large apertures in all open forms, and unique ogee curves on diagonals. The resultant texture is lively but not intrusive, and makes for a friendly and readable text.
Candara was tuned for ClearType rendering environment and is included with Windows Vista and Office 2007.
