CSS font-family Property

The font-family property specifies the font for an element.

There are two types of font family names:

  • 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".

Start with the font you want, and always end with a generic family, to let the browser pick a similar font in the generic family, if no other fonts are available.

Note: Separate each value with a comma.

Note: If a font name contains white-space, it must be quoted.
