play an important part in web design. Remember two things, though...
- For normal
text in a web page, stick to the well known fonts, such as Arial,
Verdana (that's this one), Times New Roman (ugh!) or Helvetica (for

Only fonts already on a visitor's machine will be used.

means use fancier fonts in graphics, and the links below will give you
access to thousands of different fonts. But use them sparingly.
