sans-serif, serif, monospace - these are the most generic fonts that I am aware of that are available and look similar across all platforms.
I write online applications. I'm not a designer. So I typically haven't even bothered with setting a font-family for the site. In fact; I am beginning to question the need to do so until the new online font technologies become standard and available to everyone. It seems like a waste when you could possibly have a large demographic of end users who won't see the site the way you want them to anyway.
My questions to the community:
- Do you set the font-family styles for your websites?
- How often do you use font-family?
- What are your favorite fonts that you have found work well across all platforms?
Thank you for you input.
