Could anyone suggest a good font or combination of fonts that I can use for my online business survey? I have access to typekit, so would be great if the font choice was available from them.

I'm looking for safe bet as it's a business survey, any combo that looks professional and is easy to read would be great.

I know very little about fonts so please if I can provide any more information let me know.

I'd go with a classic Helvetica/Garamond blend - it's a proven classic. For a quick look at combos that work, I typically use http://bonfx.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/09/19-top-fonts-in-19-top-combinations-chart.pdf

If you are looking to build your unique combination I can recommend reading:

Thanks Bogdan, good links and thanks for the advice on the Helvetica/Garamon blend. Typekit have Nimbus Sans so will try that with the Garamond. – WooHoo Sep 16 '12 at 14:34

Good answer above, I can also recommend Typewolf.com, which suggests complementary font combos and shows examples of them in action.
