I like Arial and Tahoma but that is just my preference.

Verdana and Georgia are typically my go-to fonts, but with the leauge of movable type and other actual implementations I've been switching around to include deja vu and liberation. This among quite a few others, but nonetheless those are the typical ones I use.

I personally prefer calibri or century gothic for my stuff, they scale nicely and I don't see them used much elsewhere.

I think Calibri might work nicely with your site. It has a softer feel to it than what you are currently using. Your best bet will probably be to experiment with a few and just see what works best with it. Good luck and let us know what you decide on.
