Chapter 8. Fonts and Characters > Changing Font Face

Changing Font Face

Unless you specify a font face, any text on your pages will appear in the user's browser window in their browser's default font face. Most users probably have Times New Roman (Times) as their default proportional font, although some may have changed it.

When specifying font faces on a Web page, keep in mind that not every user has every font installed—far from it. Additionally, fonts that come from the same typeface family can be named several different things (such as Arial, Helvetica, and Univers), or the same font may be named different things on different platforms (Times New Roman on Windows is nearly the same as Times and New York on the Mac).
