Sorry if this has been answered a billion times before.
Where do I find a list of fonts that work on all the major browsers?
Well, there really isn't one. The fonts available are more a function of the OS running the browser. But don't worry. Nobody but you gives the South end of a North bound rat about the fonts you're specifying.
But see http://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/default.aspx and click on "Fonts and products" to get an idea of what's out there.
Well to me the various fonts are more about spacing than style. I'm working on a site without much content (but they don't WANT more content,) and yet I'm supposed to make it seem like it has a bit more content than it has...
Thanks for the link.
Forget about the fonts; you need to visit http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/text.html#propdef-letter-spacing and http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/visudet.html#propdef-line-height .
