The topic of web-friendly fonts has come up a few times recently in the presentation and early stages of the web design process. In a perfect design world, every font could be read by every browser, and the topic of web safe fonts would not be an issue. But as long as there are different operating systems and different browsers, it cannot be ignored. For this reason, I have put together the following reference list of common web-friendly fonts that can be checked across multiple browsers and platforms. They are listed here as HTML text in 24pt and 12pt font sizes.
