To see my site as I would like you to see it, you need the following great fonts that you might not already have. You might be wondering, "How do you add fonts?"
It is easy to install new fonts on your computer. If you have Windows, then simply open up the Windows folder on your hard drive. Then, open up the Fonts folder within the Windows folder. Therein, you will see the fonts that you currently have. To add fonts, simply download them into the Fonts folder. You only need to add the file with a .ttf extension; you can disregard the normally accompanying .txt file. Many fonts are free.
For all of the categories, if you do not have any of the listed fonts, you will see simply your boring default serif font.
My chief text font used to be Perpetua. Most word processing software includes it. However, Windows alone does not come with it, and its owner Monotype charges money for it. After I kept hearing complaints that readers would not see the page the way I see it, I switched to the common Times New Roman font. Times New Roman is also the default font if you do not have the fonts listed below.
The menu font is Lombardic, which is free. If you do not have Lombardic, you will see Mael. If you have neither font, you will see Colonial Uncial. As all of these fonts are free and totally cool, I recommend that you download and install them.
The site name font is Mael. If you do not have Mael, then you will see Colonial Uncial. You can download these fonts for free by following the links for the menu text above.
Blog date and various subheaders
The font for the date header in each blog entry is Colonial Uncial. If you do not have Colonial Uncial, you will see Mael.
Blog entry title and realm and category descriptions
For the entry titles, you will see the first of these fonts that you have: Edwardian Script ITC, Kunstler Script, Vladimir Script, Monotype Corsiva, or Palace Script MT. The realm and category descriptions prioritize Monotype Corsiva if you have it.
