Here is a glance at what fonts you can use for your website design. Select that matches the general feel of your website Make sure it looks lovely in normal, italic & bold Check to see it doesn't become over pixellated at larger font sizes (eg when used for headings) Always specify alternative 'safe' fonts Check your web pages - do they get messed up if the default font is not available & of your alternative fonts is used?
It is great to select a cold font for a contemporary, funky website, but bear in mind that the font you select will only show on your visitor's screen if that visitor has that font installed on their own machine, be it a PC or a Mac. If you are a Mac lover, & love the Skia font for example, this won't show on PC's, which make up a immense portion of machines that web surfers use to access the world wide web.
There are millions of Mac users - lots of of my associates swear by them, although I haven't made the jump yet myself. In the event you design using a Mac, bear in mind that lots of the fonts you have access to, won't be available to lots of your website visitors who are using PC's. So specify alternative fonts in your CSS as shown below (use whatever selector you like), substituting for the fonts you like:
Body font: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
Keep in mind, when using a font which consists of over word, with a space or spaces between words; don't forget to make use of quotes, for example: "Times New Roman".
