    Best Font for Subtitles? and other General Subtitling questions?

    Level 1
      I've never had to use subtitles, until my current project, so I am looking for some general advice and suggestions.

      I will be using PPCS3 (on XPpro) as the subtitles (as in the kind that translate a foreign language) will be permanent.

      So here are my questions:
      1. What is the best font and or what is the most standard font for subtitles? (Font size and other characteristics may be worth mentioning here too.)
      2. Is it possible to have an outline around the text as opposed to shadow?
      3. What are some general rules of thumb for subtitles that apply to broadcast and cinematic productions?

      Thank you.
