Serif Web Safe Fonts

font-family: 'Bookman Old Style', serif; Bookman Old Style
font-family: Garamond, serif; Garamond
font-family: Georgia, serif; Georgia
font-family: 'Palatino Linotype', 'Book Antiqua', Palatino, serif; Palatino Linotype, Book Antiqua

Sans Serif Web Safe Fonts

Sans serifs are typically used for the bulk of the content on a Web site.

font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; Arial, Helvetica
font-family: 'Arial Black', Gadget, sans-serif; Arial Black, Gadget
font-family: Impact, Charcoal, sans-serif; Impact, Charcoal
font-family: 'MS Sans Serif', Geneva, sans-serif; MS Sans Serif, Geneva
font-family: 'MS Serif', 'New York', sans-serif; MS Serif, New York
font-family: 'Trebuchet MS', Helvetica, sans-serif; Trebuchet MS, Helvetica

font-family: 'Lucida Sans Unicode', 'Lucida Grande', sans-serif; Lucida Sans Unicode, Lucida Grande
font-family: Tahoma, Geneva, sans-serif; Tahoma, Geneva

Monospace Web Safe Fonts

Monospace fonts are useful when you want to make sure characters all line up with exactly the same width. Displaying code or tabular data without using a table are good uses for monospace fonts.

font-family: Courier, monospace; Courier
font-family: 'Courier New', Courier, monospace; Courier New, Courier
font-family: 'Lucida Console', Monaco, monospace; Lucida Console, Monaco

"Cursive" Web Safe Fonts

Currently, there aren't many Web safe cursive fonts. There is a "cursive" fallback, like sans-serif, serif, and monospace, but for the most part this is highly unused.

Cursive fonts should be avoided in my opinion.

font-family: 'Comic Sans MS', cursive; Comic Sans MS
