Specifies the font face for text.
The font-family property is a comma separated list of font family names.
There are generic family names and others. The generic family names are supported by all browsers on all platforms, other family names are not necessarily. If you specify more than one font family, the browser will use the first from left to right that can be recognized. For that reason, always use a generic family name at the last position of the fonts. Family names containing whitespace must be quoted!
