CSS Fonts -
You can use any font installed on your system for styling your website, but you should use a web-safe font.
These are fonts that are generally considered safe to use because they are available on most users' systems.
Now the following table shows the generally accepted web-safe fonts along with their generic font family names.
There are several CSS properties that control basic text styling. We’ll discuss a few of them in this section.
CSS font-family Property-
The font-family property sets the font to use for the element's text. This font is inherited by descendant elements.
font-family can be specified as a single value, the name of the font to use.
More commonly, a comma-separated list of fonts is given.
The browser will try each font, starting with the first, until a match is found.
Generally, the list starts specific and gets more general.
The last font family in the list is typically a generic one like monospace or sans-serif, where the browser will use a fallback font that approximates the desired appearance. Font names containing spaces should be enclosed in quotes.
Now we will see examples -
font-family: Georgia, 'Times New Roman', serif;
In the above-given example, the browser will try Georgia first. If Georgia is unavailable, it will try Times New Roman. Lastly, if that is not available, it will fall back to a built-in generic serif font.
