    List of Fonts (Visual)

    I am looking for a site that has the list of all the web or just fonts in general. A page with name and an example would be great. Any URLs

    There's no such thing as web fonts. I suggest just using serif, sans-serif and monospace when specifying fonts.

    Here are some statistics on popular fonts for windows, mac, and unix family.

    But again, there's no such thing as a web font, it all depends on what fonts are present on the end user's system. Which is why you see multiple fonts declared in CSS, such as:

    Code:
     body { font-family:Arial, Tahoma, serif; }
    If the first font isn't present it will move through the list until it finds one that's on the system, if there are no matches the browser will use its default font.
    Computer, kill Flanders... Did I hear my name? My ears are burning...
    Good start. Now finish the job.

    You can specify fonts to fall back on with CSS:

    font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif;

    If Verdana doesn't render, check for Arial. No Arial? Load the generic sans-serif font.

    Foundries

    A generic list of fonts with examples will be hard to find; fonts are brought out by a number of foundries, and each has a listing of their own products.

    Next to that, there's a large number of free font sites offering an abundance of "home grown" fonts, many of which are not very good. But hey: you get what you pay for!

    On MyFonts, you can search through quite a collection of fonts from various foundries; you can search by category, foundry, or name; come to think of it, this may just be what you're looking for!
    Regards,
    Ronald.

    I guess I stated my qusetion wrong. What I was looking for is a chart like document where various fonts that exist by way of examples. The reason i am looking for such a chart is because i am editing a image in photoshop cs and instead of scrolling through all the fonts until i find the right one, I can just look on the chart and pick something that I like.

    i take it that you want to view the fonts that you have installed on your own machine. am i right?
    what i use for looking through my fonts is thumbsplus www.cerious.com. it will scan your fonts directory and create a catalog of the fonts with a display of the font appearance.

    check this out and you can locate some freeware font viewing utilities: www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=font+viewer
    jf~ if you're not part of the solution, you're part of the precipitate.
