Text data is a simple or meaningful text field for any string input.
Serif fonts have small, decorative flourishes on the strokes that make up letters or symbols and they tend to be used more in books and magazines as they are easier to read. For Example, Times New Roman is a common Serif font.
Sans Serif fonts, do not have flourishes at the end of strokes and tend to be "cleaner" such as the Arial font. They are mostly used in main text paragraphs.
