Help with choosing a font for a headline

I’m looking for help/suggestuons with choosing a font for a headline on a web page.
I’d like the headline to be all lower case, and be clean and professional looking.
I like helvetica, but I’d don’t love it. Any thoughts?

Maybe have a look at the Google sans-serif fonts:

Thanks for that tip/link. Much appreciated.
So, I choose a google font for a text headline) and added the google link between <head> and <head>, and added the font to my css, but it seems when I am on my web pages, if I back arrow to the home page the headline font isn’t the google font anymore. I have to close and refresh to bring it back. Weird. Any ideas? Can i download the actual font and add it to a folder, rather than use the google link?

No, you can’t do that with Google fonts. Other sites like FontSquirrel have fonts you can actually dowlnload and place on your site. Have you got a link to the site? That’s not the normal behavior. Make sure to add the Google link to the head of all pages (unless it’s just being used on one page, I guess, though that would be odd.)

Thanks for your reply.

Yes, I have this:

<link href='' rel='stylesheet' type='text/css'>

And I even put the font inline in the html to see if that helped:

<font size="5px" color="#be7e7e" font face="Arimo">test</font>

Do you see anything wrong with what I’m showing here?

Ech, don’t do that, please. It’s horribly outdated. Just stick to declaring fonts in your CSS.

Hey man, you should use something based on Sans Serif style. It’s really clean and it looks very professional, good luck :slight_smile:
