A very subtle one. You can look at the serifs to find them. But being the goal to be a nearly identical font, you can hardly perceive any difference without careful analysis. I find the printed result more elegant under Times, but this might only be self-suggestion. Or the devil in the details really does its trick.

Hoefler text regular face is a relatively standard serif font - upstanding and at least on par with Garamond Pro - but it's when you, fingers trembling, hit Cmd-i, that Hoefler text really shines. It's got the best, hands down the best italic face there is. I get all shivery just talking about it (and yes I'm aware of how silly it is to be in love with a medium rather than a message, but what the hey).
It's actually a shame that I don't write the sort of fantasy that italicises every second made-up word. Alas, instead I find myself thinking 'now how can I fit the some latin genus name into this chapter on fish spawning...'
That being said, there's another font, erm, Fangsong? It's an Adobe font, I'm quite fond of it, for regular face stuff.
On the web, where fonts are limited, I find a nice generic sans like Helvetica works a treat.
