Web-Safe Typefaces and Font Stacks3:52 with Anwar Montasir
Creating functional typography involves making adjustments to sizing and spacing, as well as choosing the right typeface for the job.

That’s because we haven’t learned the `font-family` property, which allows us to choose a different typeface.

Single quotes or double?
Should typefaces containing multiple words go in single or double quotes? See this discussion in our Treehouse forum:
I tend to use double quotes for HTML and single quotes for CSS and JS, but you'll see in this course that either method is accepted by the browser.
