Tips on using font stacks

By using font stacks you effectively prevent the browser to choose fonts for you. And you thus remain the Web Designer. 🙂

Font Stacks – How to Choose a Workable CSS Font Stack

When you write CSS font families, you should write a list of fonts that the browser can use, in order of preference. This way, if your first choice of font is not available, perhaps your second choice is, and so on through your list. By choosing a good list of fonts, you can be sure that your Web pages will look close to how you intended them to look. If you don’t choose the font, and the one you want isn’t available, the browser will choose for you, and that is never pretty.
