Using the standard Web safe fonts is quickly becoming a thing of the past thanks to modern alternatives like @font-face kits and the new Google Font API. Taking a quick look through the Getting Started guide shows just how simple it is to apply the API to your Web site. All you have to do is add a link between your site’s head tags to the CSS file hosted on Google, and then you can call the chosen font throughout your stylesheet.

Here is an example of the link:

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="">

Then you can use the font like this:

      body {
        font-family: 'Tangerine', serif;
        font-size: 48px;
