Web Safe Fonts


Web Safe FontsWhen designing a website there are a number of platforms (Windows, Linux, Mac, Tablet, Mobile...) and browsers (Opera, Firefox, Safari, Froyo, Internet Explorer...) to consider. Although modern browsers support any font hosted on a website, older browsers only support fonts that are installed on the operating system (platform) used to view the website. Here are a list of web safe font families you should choose from when designing a site or HTML email if you want it to look similar to all visitors:

If you are sure that the vast majority of your visitors will be using secure, modern and Standards Compliant browsers like Opera, Firefox, Safari, Froyo... then you can make use of CSS3 features that allow the use of web hosted fonts; then even dual/triple colour text is possible on your web pages without the use of images like "Stomp Swirl". Until recently we did not recommend their use but now Chrome and anyone with Internet Explorer 9 or above can render CSS3 pages making dual colour fonts suitable for virtually all websites.


Dual Colour Web Font

eg. Stomp Swirl is one Dual Colour web-suitable font that works in all modern browsers. Both colours are specified in CSS.
