    Does it default to Arial or something?

    Most browsers have a font they default to if the font isn't found.

    Generally speaking, a good idea is to specify more than one font for the browser to try in your CSS file:

    Code:
    body { font-family: Arial, Helvetica, Sans-Serif }
    
    The fact that I can recall this, means I was taught something at college :bowdown:
