Font families....

Post by RSteinwand » Wed Apr 24, 2013 7:19 am

Hi Albert,

Just wanted to share what I found awhile back regarding modern font-families.

This page seems to have a good handle on it and I've updated all my css to reflect it: http://kv5r.com/web-dev/the-new-font-family/

As a result, I now see messages about Linux or Mac fonts, which I know I can ignore. :D

This is more of a "sharing", than "complaining" post.

Thanks. I don't remember going over this so I needed the reminder. :mrgreen:

I've added several fonts to CSE HTML Validator's recognized list of fonts to improve the messages that CSE HTML Validator generates when any of the suggestions from that page is used.

I did not add "dingbats" though as I don't think that works.

Thanks Albert.

I'm pretty sure no seasoned web developer uses dingbat anyway.
