15 Fantastic Web Fonts for Body Text

Last week we focused on how to make the headlines on your site pop. Now, what about all of the rest of the text? In many cases, simply Arial or Helvetica can do the trick, but sometimes we have a more specific look-and-feel in mind.

Sometimes CSS fails to render a font properly on a website, and so having multiple styles helps avoid that problem. This set of fonts from Google Web Fonts is useful because each font set has multiple font styles, making it perfect for use all over your website:
