Web Safe Fonts for CSS3

While editing the CSS font properties for one of the plugins on this blog I went in search of list of Websafe fonts that I can easily reference when writing or editing CSS. I found a very good list here, you should visit the link if you want to know why these fonts are classed as web safe.

Here is a list of web safe fonts to use on your next projects. The extra good news is that this list includes fonts for Linux users as well.

You can have a look at the list of web safe CSS3 fonts below, or you can download them as a text file.
