    An excellent article, Karianne, thank you.

    And to jbagley: this article and this thread (so far) talk about system fonts, and you can program them in your styles (note that in html you can also describe a font as "serif" or "sans serif").

    But, when it comes to graphics, you have a lot more options to choose from. Similar rules of shapes are applicable to your graphics. It really depends on the mood of the site you are creatign. Typography is a huge field!

    Some fonts I know people like for graphics / nav bars...
    Sans serif... Futura, Gill Sans, Myriad, Tahoma.
    Serif... American Typewriter, Garamond, Bookman Old Style
    Shani

    I have an eye for detail like you'd never believe.
