Use standard typefaces


Use standard typefaces as they already exist on the user’s computer, and therefore do not need to be downloaded. This saves bandwidth and improves the website’s render time.

When possible, use typefaces such as:

  • Courier New
  • Georgia
  • Arial
  • Comic
  • Impact
  • Tahoma
  • Trebuchet MS
  • Times New Roman
  • Verdana
  • Segoe UI
