    I want to convert my blog to the main font used on the WordPress website.
    How can I set it up my system?

    Speaking of Georgia ... how come when at work (or on a PC other than my home machine) the font displays nice and "smooth" and beautiful ... but at home it looks "pixelated" or slightly jagged around the edges? In apps like Photoshop it looks fine but when viewing a web page that uses Georgia it comes out looking like the latter description? Any ideas? My monitor?

    If a font has more than one word in it's name, it should be enclosed in ''
    'Times New Roman'

    "font" is just a descriptor that can be used to describe all the properties of a font in one statement. Using font-family you can describe only the font family. Both should work equally well to describe the font family used, I guess.

    The reason it might appear smooth on one computer and jagged on another has to do with the anti-aliasing settings. In Windows XP, try right clicking on your desktop > Properties > Appearance > Effects > and then check the box that says smooth screen fonts. Use cleartype if you have a LCD monitor.
