@Deeproar Anything works! Though if the name of the font is given, the code doesn't need to be.

Thanks!

@Kyrati I think what fonts you can see depends on your computer(? idk computer stuff) so sometimes different fonts will appear the same, if your computer doesn't have one or the other.

@Rhea As far as I am aware, the rule of thumb is that any font you have installed on your computer will show up for you in code. If you don't have it installed, it should default to something like Times New Roman, a neutral font that most everyone should have. In the case of cursive, I'm not sure that's a real font. It's a default name used in some codes, but I don't think BBCode is one of them, so it would default to something else (Comic Sans in this case).



Also, just something I've noticed today while playing around with fonts:

If you download and install a new font and apply it to a dragon bio or the like in an existing internet page, the font won't display for you. You have to open a completely new window before the new font will display for you. It will work, but your browser needs to close and reopen to be able to recognize the new material.

@Rhea
Yeah it pretty much depends on if you have them installed or not on your computer! If you don't it just shows up as the typical default FR font
Like for example, on my (crappy) chromebook I have a very restricted amount of fonts, so a lot of different fonts just show up as the plain old default font( like Curlz MT, Fantasy, webdings, and Symbol in @Kyrati example)
Maybe FR should come up with their own set of universal fonts that work for everybody on the site? Until then sticking with my times new roman which is pretty common.

Cursive shows up as a nice, understated serif font on my computer:
https://www.dropbox.com/s/neb9gyrueivh3eu/Screenshot%202015-05-24%2022.34.26.png?dl=0

I don't know, it may well be something that works on Mac vs Windows? I also have probably thousands of fonts installed (but "Cursive" isn't one of them), so there's that, I guess.

Great idea bringing this together, Rhea!
