When you use a font, it is important to remember that the veiwer of your page may not have the font on their computer.
If you define a font that the viewer lacks, the page text will display what their browers default font.

To avoid this you can use generic font names.

Serif (Arial, Helvetica) - Sans-serif (Times New Roman, Times)
monospace (NewCourier, Courier) - Cursive (Comic Sans, Gill Sans)
