Design Considerations


A good idea in most media (whether in print or on the web) is to use only two or three different fonts in any presentation. (Different sizes of the same font count as one font. Bold and italic versions of the same font count as one font.)

In choosing fonts for the text of your page, pick the base True Type fonts which come standard in all Windows 95 & 98 computers. This will insure that people who look at your page will see the font you intended them to see. Microsoft considers the following fonts as the base fonts for use on the Internet. These fonts include:

In both web design and print layout, readability is increased if you use a sans serif font for headers and headlines and a serif font for the text.
