web safe fonts

Its quite common now days to have custom type face for web design.

These browser supports TTF (true type) / OTF (open type) format:
  • Safari / Webkit 3.1
  • Opera 10 / Opera Mobile 9.7
  • Firefox 3.5 / Thunderbird 3 / SeaMonkey 2
  • Ie9 (maybe?)
  • Chrome 4
While IE 5/6/7/8/9 supports EOT (embeded open type) format.
@font-face will not work on chrome / safari if font-variant is set to small-cap.

As for other browser, you may set alternative font-family of type face web-safe fonts:
