EARL'S FONT FACE TEST PAGE

For a particular font face to display on a Web page, it must already be installed on the user's computer. Otherwise, the text appears in the browser's default font. The chart below shows how some font faces display on your computer. Most of these are fonts that I've actually seen on Web pages. If you don't have the specified font, you'll just see the default.

Web designers can gain some measure of control by specifying several font faces (separated by commas), and the user's browser will scan through the list until it finds a font it can use. The default will display only if none of the specified fonts are found.

Bear in mind that any given font can be specified for various SIZES and colors, as well as bold, italics, underlined, etc. You can also create monospaced typewriter font by surrounding the text with an opening and closing TT tag.
