Font in html ?

I now learn about adding fonds via google fonts and add those via the given links. What I don't understand is why one should define fonts in html (being about the structure) and not so much in css (being about presence, seems more relevant to fonts)? Is there a rationale for this that I might miss?

Hi Arjan,

you just write path of a given font - in other words you just tell google google "Hey, I am gonna use that font" and later in CSS you use it as you normally would

You just write the source of that font into your html. Google fonts are not standard in any browser. So the Browser need to know the external source (like a path) of that font.
