Clemson’s Web site will be employing a style sheet using the following fonts:

Trade Gothic
Trade Gothic Light
Trade Gothic Condensed
FG Saga

Be conscious of font size on your Web pages. While visitors can change the font size on their monitors, you don’t want to make a visitor change his/her settings due to extra small fonts. Also, avoid extra large fonts. This will give your site an unprofessional look.

Avoid more than two fonts on the same page. Operating systems (Unix, Mac and Windows) all work differently, and browsers display fonts differently and often are incompatible. Fonts have to be installed on your visitor’s system for your type to appear as you intend. Providing a choice of one or two fonts in your code is strongly advised.
