Specify the font for a paragraph:
The font-family property specifies the font for an element.
The font-family property can hold several font names as a "fallback" system. If the browser does not support the first font, it tries the next font.
There are two types of font family names:
Start with the font you want, and always end with a generic family, to let the browser pick a similar font in the generic family, if no other fonts are available.
Note: Separate each value with a comma.
Note: If a font name contains white-space, it must be quoted. Single quotes must be used when using the "style" attribute in HTML.
|Default value:||not specified|
The font-family property is supported in all major browsers.
Note: The value "inherit" is not supported in IE7 and earlier. IE8 requires a !DOCTYPE. IE9 supports "inherit".
