CSS Fonts Module Level 3

There are two types of font family names:[1]

  • family-name
    • The name of a font family of choice such as Helvetica or Verdana in the previous example.
  • generic-family
    • The following generic family keywords are defined: ‘serif’, ‘sans-serif’, ‘cursive’, ‘fantasy’, and ‘monospace’. These keywords can be used as a general fallback mechanism when an author's desired font choices are not available. As keywords, they must not be quoted. Authors are encouraged to append a generic font family as a last alternative for improved robustness.
