I have spent much time trying to figure this out myself, and I am surprised at the responses. Here is what I found out: 1: Fonts are copywrited property, and cannot be distributed accross the Internet. 2: The W3C and others are working on a solution, such as TrueDoc or OpenType. 3: Specify more than one font: "Helvetica, Arial, sans-serif" the last being a generic style. 4: Using Cascading Style Sheets you can specify a 'Font-Family' (just like above), and a font size in Pixels, this will make the text the same size in any browser that supports CSS. 5: Try to stick with common fonts: Times Roman, Helvetica, Arial, Courier, Georgia, Impact, Veranda. Font style is a graphic element and should be standardized so that designers can make more appealing pages.
