You can see how well your browser supports various fonts by examining this list. The fonts that are supported will look different from the default tall spindly Modern font. You can also examine the list of supported font names in the FontShower Applet. All you have to do is install more fonts in the Control Panel to make the fonts available to HTML (Hypertext Markup Language). Unfortunately, others may not have those same fonts installed. There is no way to include licenced fonts with your HTML document. Beware, even with the same fonts installed, different browsers, particularly IE (Internet Explorer), may render them quite differently especially for the unusual characters.
Most modern fonts are designed to work with anti-aliasing and look flea-bitten without it. This is why the same font can look spectacular in Vista and wretched in W2K.
