CSS font-family Property

Definition

The font-family property is a prioritized list of font family names and/or generic family names for an element. The browser will use the first value it recognizes.
There are two types of font-family values:
  • family-name: The name of a font-family, like "times", "courier", "arial", etc.
  • generic-family: The name of a generic-family, like "serif", "sans-serif", "cursive", "fantasy", "monospace".
Note: Separate each value with a comma, and always offer a generic-family name as the last alternative.
Note: If a family-name contains white-space, it should be quoted. Single quotes must be used when using the "style" attribute in  HTML.
Inherited: Yes

JavaScript Syntax

CSS properties can also be dynamically changed with a JavaScript.
Scripting Syntax: object.style.fontFamily="arial, sans-serif"

Example

body
{
font-family: courier, serif
} p
{
font-family: arial, "lucida console", sans-serif
}
