Hi everybody. I'm using Dreamweaver CS6 to build a site. Here's my problem: When I launch the page in any browser from Dreamweaver I'm seeing the text formatted in Verdana, which is right. When I upload the page to the server or if I open up the page outside of Dreamweaver i.e just clicking on the page in Finder (I'm using a Mac) and access the page from my disk-drive the page opens, but the text isn't in Verdana. Any ideas why? Thanks for any advice... ps I'm new to developing websites. The page is in HTML5 and I'm also using CSS to format the page and the text properties are within a CSS:
font:Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;
Your css is defining a psudo-class called page.
Needs to define the body tag.
Thanks for the advice.

I don't think using 'font' and 'font-family' makes any difference. That's not the problem here..?? I'm trying to figure what it is too.
