There is an incredibly comprehensive collection of usability/accessibility studies and information available from Wichita State University's Software Usability Research Lab. Studies include font choices, frames, image use and lots more...
Most interesting: "Evidence suggests that the most commonly used fonts tend to be equally legible at the 10-, 12-, and 14-point size."
I had always suspected this, especially with fonts like Verdana, but never had any facts to back it up. These studies are a great resource, especially considering how much it usually costs to read the results of studies of this depth.
