Question about the default typeface of XenForo...


Well-known member
This board is using the Georgia typeface by default, right? My question is quite simple... Will that be the universal standard default for all stock XenForo installations? I'm only asking because I want to be sure Georgia is a common typeface on Windows, Mac OS X and Linux machines alike.

I quite like it, but perhaps it shouldn't be the default if it isn't as universal as Arial or Verdana.

Yeah, I knew the adoption had to be very high, well above 90% or so, since Georgia has been around (on Windows, at least) since 1993.

I'll probably make Arial or Verdana the fallback typeface, though.
