Up until recently, the world of typography has been extremely limited on the world wide web. Nice type has been something reserved for graphics that don't need to be edited (images of type), which means the occasional headline or rotating promotion on the homepage. The remainder of the text throughout the site (the large majority) has been set in Arial, or Verdana, or Tahoma, or one of the others from the very limited list of web-safe fonts. First proposed in CSS2, the @font-face style now makes it possible to use TrueType or OpenType fonts on websites.
