When it comes to basic Web Page layout, there are only a few font styles to choose from.
The reason for this is there aren’t many standard typefaces that are shared by every operating system. If you choose a typeface outside of the above list then be prepared to create an image of it if you want it to display correctly.
Now there are more advanced font management systems available online, including a free one managed by Google that I mentioned in a previous post, but these can become complicated fast. For our current purposes we should stick with the above listed fonts.
