    I'm very confused by this one...

    My font is set as font-family: Arial, Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif, "Lucinda Grande"; at 11px.

    This is working great on every page on my site...except for anything located in a subfolder it seems to change to Verdana - ie http://www.pacesettertravel.com/pace...?id=conditions

    I cannot for the life of me work out why this is. The page directly is - http://www.pacesettertravel.com/pace...conditions.php

    which is being called by an include.

    I don't know if that's enough information but I don't really know what else to describe...

    Cheers.

    Have you tried commenting out this css?

    Code:
    bookings.css
    body {
    background-color:#000033;
    font-family:Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif;
    font-size:10px;
    }

    Nice one! That works.

    I still have no idea why that is.

    Although I must suggest that Verdana is a clearer font... Arial seems to "skinny" to me.

    But that's really a matter of personal preference.

    I will say that listing Lucida Grande after sans-serif is useless, however. Those lists are in order of preference, and every browser will have some font set for sans-serif, so anything after that (or any of the other general font family properties; namely serif, monospace, and fantasy) will probably never be used

    To be honest, the Lucinda Grande was just added by Dreamweaver. It's in their default list for those fonts. I thought it was useless too.

    I like Verdana...but I think Arial suits this site well.

    Why is everybody hating on Times New Roman? With a bit of CSS, it can actually look pretty good. There are too few web-safe fonts in the world for us to start throwing away perfectly good serifs.

    Times New Roman can be a great header font, I just dislike it for body text. Usually big and italic is its best form.

    I generally like any large type, because they're anti-aliased and look clean. I especially enjoy TNR/Georgia headers.
