very readable fonts and readable script fonts

Hello, I am wondering where on the web I could find good readable fonts as well as good readable script fonts. Readability is key, I'd like to use the fonts for very small and very large font size.

Thanks in Advance,

Bob

Lobo has given you so great fonts, but here's some extra-small to tiny fonts that are especially designed to remain very readable at small sizes (not so useful in large sizes due to their pixelated nature):
