I remember back in my time Aerial font size 11 was the standard for submitting documents. Is that still the case or has it changed? What is the proper font and size to use for submitting your material?

Times New Roman, font size 12, double spaced, 1 inch margins, format: indent.

 

Might vary by agent/publisher, though. Here's one of the many places on the web that recommends my guidelines.

Most want Times New Roman 12 point, as Speedchuck said above.
