Font family Property

For selecting a specific font we have to use a font-family property.

The font-family property should hold several font names as a "fallback" system, to ensure maximum compatibility between browsers/operating systems.


Let us use the font-family property for two paragraphs:

        .p1 {
  font-family: "Times New Roman", Times, serif;
.p2 {
  font-family: Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

Using Font online

We can also use google fonts by importing them through googlefonts.com.

we have to select the font and copy its importing link and paste it in the top of our CSS.

@import url('https://fonts.googleapis.com/css2?family=Roboto:[email protected]&display=swap');
   font-family: 'Roboto', sans-serif;


Font Size Property
