Website System Fonts for Macs and PCs
Free Font HTML Guide
What are system fonts?
They are the operating
system fonts used by Macs and PCs across a wide range
of platforms and monitor display settings.
What does this mean to me if I want to design a
When you create a website, you
should remember that the fonts which appear on your web pages are actually
determined by the visiting browser. With this in mind, if a visitor to your
website doesn't have the specified font in your web page, the browser will simply
substitute its own default font.
What fonts should I use?
There isn't a definitive
shortlist of universal system fonts, but the following list is considered pretty
safe and is supplied and installed with most operating systems. This list might
appear rather bland, but at least you know it's fairly safe and your web pages
should appear to others the way you intended.
3. Times New
5. Courier/Courier New
How do we handle fonts at Quick on the Net?
font selection is built-in to our site
builder software. Indeed, we use font faces in such a way that if your
website visitors haven't got the specified system font, we will try to find the
closest font face and display it in the web browser instead.
Text in a web page...
- In a website, the system font text is considered to be 'live' and it can
wrap itself around objects and graphics to suit different screen resolutions and
monitor sizes on Macs and PCs.
- The text can be printed.
- It can be picked up and indexed by search engine robots (also known as
search engine spiders or crawlers).
- The text is resizable and you can apply different colours and type effects
to it using a cascading style sheet (also known as a CSS).
How do I use non-system fonts in my
best way to feature your corporate typeface or special font face in your
business website design is to create graphical headlines or
typographical enhancements and splash them around your site. These graphical
elements should be saved as GIF (or JPG) picture image files. In
website design, they are converted to
images, as far as your website visitors are concerned, it doesn't matter what
font face you have used. Remember to apply 'alt text' to your graphical text, to
make it accessible and ensure it is picked up by search engines.
