Font Family

The font-family property specifies the type of font for an element. You can specify just one font such as Arial, but it's also commonplace to specify multiple fonts separated by commas e.g. "Book Antiqua", Garamond, serif (hence the name font-family). The browser will try to load the first font, in this case "Book Antiqua". If the user doesn't have that font installed on their computer the second font will be loaded (e.g. Garamond) or the third - and so on. Note that if a font has spaces in the name in needs to be wrapped in quotes as has been done with "Book Antiqua".
