Courier is the traditional monospace font. Courier New is Microsoft's version of Courier. Most Windows and Macintosh computers will have Courier New. Verdana is popular, but still new to the scene. Tahoma's style is half-way between Verdana and Arial.
Comic Sans MS is often liked for its informal feel. Avante Garde is big and spacious.
Impact and Arial Black are both designed for titles and headings. All of the fonts in this section suffer from the problem that most Unix machines don't have the fonts. From around until mid, Microsoft distributed a set of Web-optimized fonts, for free use.
They have stopped allowing downloads, but still ship the fonts with Windows. Verdana is a sans-serif replacement. Its lowercase letters are very large, compared to the overall size of the font, which makes text easy to read on the web. Unfortunately, the stretching of Verdana lowercase letters has two drawbacks. One issue is that the stretched letters don't look quite right when printed—compare them to Arial, for example.

The other problem is that some people don't have the Verdana font, and these people may have trouble reading a web page that uses Verdana. Tahoma is another of Microsoft's web fonts. It is not as widely available as Verdana or Arial are. Avant Garde or Century Gothic. Georgia is a web-optimized serif font, but is still a newcomer. Palatino is as old and established as Times is, but looks terrible on recent Unix systems. Georgia is a Microsoft Web font.

It has serifs but also has large lowercase letters, similar to Verdana. It is a nicely readable screen font, but has the same problems that Verdana does: it looks bad when printed, and paged designed for Georgia will look bad if rendered in Times, because of the difference in letter size. Palatino is a less-commonly used serif font. It is available on Windows computers under alternate font names. Palatino was originally designed as a display font—for example, to be used in lettering on signs. Nevertheless, it is commonly used to set body text.
