If one does not specify fonts at all, the browser may still pick a
less-than-ideal font if it is even smart enough to not simply default to
showing squares. Another alternative would be to specify the font in CSS,
but also provide a download link to the font -- at least in the case of
Open Source fonts or shareware fonts like Code 2000.
