p {
#p1 {
    font-family: "Comic Sans MS", "Trebuchet MS", Arial;
#p2 {
    font-family: "Arial Black", Impact, Verdana;
#p3 {
    font-family: Georgia, "Times New Roman", serif;
<p id="p1">paragraph content ...</p>
<p id="p2">paragraph content ...</p>

Tahoma •• Geneva •• Georgia •• monospace •• sans-serif •• serif
"Arial Black" •• "Comic Sans MS" •• "Times New Roman" •• "Courier New" •• "Trebuchet MS"
