Handy Design Site: Common Mac and Windows Web Fonts

I was exchanging e-mail with a designer yesterday, and the topic of standard web fonts came up. I know the list of reliable web fonts is pretty short, but I realized I didn't have a website that spelled out exactly what they were.

I do now. This article lays it all out for you. Here's a sample:

It even organizes the fonts into CSS font-families. So, us non-Mac people will know to enter:

 h1 {
   font-family: Impact, Charcoal, sans-serif;

To end up with:

Text That Impacts

The site is simple, clear and just what I needed.
