list of fonts

the reason that it is difficult to find a font reference or a complete guide to fonts on the web is that the names of fonts are different from mac to pc, the matter is further complicated because certain browsers have limited font support
Not all of the fonts listed here are considered 'safe', and any fonts used on a webpage which are not installed on a users computer will be rendered as the users default font, so it is always a good idea to have 'back up fonts' in your font tags.

<font face="helvetica, georgia, courier, arial">
what you are reading now will be rendered in the helvetica, georgia, courier or arial font. Your computer will search for each of the fonts and render this text in the first one it finds installed on your computer. If non of the fonts are installed, your computer will render this text with whatever you have installed as your default font
</font>


the following 12 fonts are installed on both pc and mac and are considered as 'safe'
arial, arial black, comic sans ms, courier, courier new, georgia,
helvetica, impact, palatino, times new roman, trebuchet ms, verdana
