:Same here. A poll on Arial and Times New Roman does not make sense, though. Should these fonts not be available, then modern browsers will automatically choose an appropriate substite, for example Helvetica and Times. The above samples will still appear different from each other (i.e. with and without serifs). Each system should also have at least one monospaced font installed. Courier, for example. The real question here is whether people will see the weirdness of the [http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/linotype/kristen-normal-itc/kristen-normal-itc/ Kristen font].{{User:Loafing/sig}} 11:11, 29 November 2006 (UTC)

:::Actually, that's not entirely true. To have that work, you need to set a font-family value as "Times New Roman", serif; or Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif;. What actually happens in the absence of any font is the browser chooses the next font in the style declaration (and if you end in a generic name like serif, it chooses its default serif font - which in a misprogrammed browser might not even be a serif font!), or the style of the parent element, or the browser's default font for display of that element. If you declare (for everyday text) font-family: Arial; then if Arial is not installed the font chosen will be whatever the browser's designed to use, which is often a serif font. So it's kinda a crap shoot in some situations. {{User:Qermaq/sig}} 22:28, 29 November 2006 (UTC)
