CSS Font Family

We observe many different font types in word editors, email texts, web pages etc.

We can achieve the different font types using the font-family attribute in CSS.

Font-Family
The font-family names can be classified into two types:
  1. Generic family
  2. Font family
1. Generic family
     The generic family is the default fonts installed in the machine.

Why use generic?
They can be used as backup, if the font used by one is not installed in a particular machine.

2. Font Family
     These font family is all the rest of the fonts which can be used to design the font types in a webpage.


Here is a sample program showcasing the font-family attribute.
