Question

With the advent of web fonts, can’t a user see a site’s font even if those fonts aren’t installed on her computer?

Answer

Yes! As you will learn in unit 5, non user fonts are fonts which are stored remotely in publicly available directories. Even if a user does not have these fonts installed on her computer, she can use the @font-face property or the <link> element to link to them.

Google Fonts is a popular directory with thousands of free fonts.
