When creating text for web pages, stick only with fonts that are most likely installed in most people's computers. Since most use Windows XP, the fonts that are most common are the ones pre-installed like arial, verdana, etc.
A typical CSS syntax would be:
font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
font-family: Times New Roman, Times, serif;
font-family: Courier New, Courier, mono;
You can always try to use a special font and hope that your site visitor has that font installed in their machine. Just make sure you have the generic font family at the end of the syntax.
font-family: MagistralC, sans-serif;
When I need to use a special font, I just embed the text in an image.
If you are using a font which is not popular or doesn't exist in the system of the visitor's browser, your text will be showed with the visitor's default font. To use a special font which is not popular, better make it as image or flash.
