    Best approach to choosing fonts for a website?

    m in the middle of designing a website, and having a bit of trouble finding out what fonts I should use on my headings/content (not logo related). Iím not using a WYSIWYG editor, so itís quite slow to get a feel for how a font will look on the site!

    The main thing that Iím curious about is whether designers use:

    web fonts (API service such as Google fonts)
    custom fonts which can be downloaded onto the server (so the client downloads the font when visiting the page)
    desktop/system fonts (there is the trouble of knowing what fonts is on the client machine, as mac and windows etc would contain different fonts)
    Any advice on making font selection easier for a website is appreciated, and is there any particular websites that are recommended for choosing a font?

    Thanks in advance!
