CSS Web Safe Font Combinations


Commonly Used Font Combinations

The font-family property should hold several font names as a "fallback" system, to ensure maximum compatibility between browsers/operating systems. If the browser does not support the first font, it tries the next font.

Start with the font you want, and end with a generic family, to let the browser pick a similar font in the generic family, if no other fonts are available:

Example

p {
  font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
}

Below are some commonly used font combinations, organized by generic family.
