  • You should specify font names in sequence i.e. font name you want first, then second font name if first is unavailable, then third font name if second is unavailable and so on.

  • You should end the list with a generic font name.

  • If font name includes space, digits or other characters, then write font name in quote " ".

  • The following generic families are defined.

'sans-serif' (e.g. Arial, Verdana, Helvetica )

'Serif' (e.g. Times )

'Monospace' (e.g. Courier)

'cursive' (e.g. Zapf-Chancery )

'fantasy' (e.g. Western)
