Why are only certain fonts available?

The SportsTG solution allows sixteen web standard fonts when creating custom pages, email templates, news articles etc.

The sixteen available fonts are as follows -

Arial Black
Comic Sans MS
Courier New
Lucida Console
Lucida Sans Unicode
Palatino Linotype
Times New Roman
Trebuchet MS1

These are a standard set of fonts common to all versions of Windows and their Mac substitutes, referred sometimes as "browser safe fonts".

Browsers can use only the fonts installed in each computer, so it means that every visitor of your web page needs to have all the fonts you want to use installed in his/her computer. Of course, different people will have different fonts installed.

Restricting use to just the browser safe fonts, you can ensure that a visitor to your site will view the information in the manner in which you attended. as some browsers or operating systems will not recognise some fonts or utilise them in a different way.
