Name that font! Finding the right name for a CSS font stack
Specifying a font with CSS font-family by its font name is more complicated than I’d realized. If you’re trying to achieve maximum compatibility of a slightly off-web-safe font without using @font-face, it may actually be impossible to account for all visitors — even if they actually have the font installed. But it’s possible to get pretty far. The good news is that if you just want Mac users to see Helvetica Neue, it’s pretty simple! Windows is less simple.
