Simplest way to typeset entire document in sans serif (Helvetica)

I'd like to have all the font in my document to be sans-serif, i.e.:

``````\textsf{}
``````

What is the best and easiest way to set this globally?

Thanks,

This has worked well for me in the past.

``````% Helvet font throughout
\usepackage{helvet}
\renewcommand{\familydefault}{\sfdefault}
``````
