fonts on Yahoo page

I am not a computer wiz, so I hate to ask, but every time I go changing ( adding or deleting ) fonts, my Yahoo page comes up with everything in a new font. Usually it picks something I can barely read.....
How can I change this to a font I want when I want to ?
Thanx for any help...

Fred, you tried to help me with this before. You said Veranda is the default font used. I made sure that font os there and now there is another font though. It seems to change randomly whenever I change something in my font nav.

The font family is Verdana and includes regular, bold, italic and bold italic. That's four different fonts.

But that is only four of a number more that are supplied with Windows and should not be deleted. Here is a list:

  • Arial
  • Book Antiqua
  • Comic Sans
  • Courier (10, 12, 15 VGA Res)
  • Courier new
  • Fixed Sys
  • Georgia
  • Impact
  • Microsoft Sans Serif
  • MS Sans (VGA Res)
  • MS Serif (VGA Res)
  • Small Fonts (VGA Res)
  • Symbol
  • Symbol (VGA Res)
  • System
  • Tahoma
  • Times new Roman
  • Trebuchet MS

However, the way web pages work, fonts are usually set to be in a particular font that is expected to be on your machine but with other names as second and third choices.
