Question

How do we know which fonts are installed on a user’s computer?

Answer

Web developers don’t know which fonts are installed on a user’s computer! Instead, they often use web safe fonts which are installed on my operating systems or web fonts which are downloaded by the browser as the page gets rendered.

To ensure that your typography looks decent on every operating system, use web safe font stacks.
