I would say it displays the browsers default font, as if you didnt specify one at all. Most browsers have times or times new roman, while f.ex safari uses georgia.

Remeber that Comic Sans MS has been known to cause instant disdain among most designers. Not putting the font down, but it is the subject of many a web design joke.

yep it will use the default, which is usually a serif font.
in this case you might want to specify
"Comic Sans MS", sans-serif
so at least you will get a sans-serif.

edit_g, I'll go the whole hog and say Comic Sans is a disgrace to typography :).

I'm totally taking this thread on a tangent, but I actually had a chance to use comic sans for its intended purpose. I did some maintenance work on "Comic Book the Movie".
Although, I still felt funny actually selecting the face.

Comic sans is a joke, yes, but all things have its useful place [csszengarden.com].
Its like colors, who would actually use pink and brown together 10 years ago? Tody its the trademark of a "hot designer who dares to break traditions". Some day you'll see comic sans all over the elit designer creations. Today a joke, tomorrow a trend.

I still remember the day I saw a place named "Hobo Barbeque" and the name was painted on the building in, you guessed it, the Hobo font. :)
And the answer to the question is it displays in the default font. Most browsers default is Times but I have seen people fax in a page from my site and they overrode all font settings to be Zapf Chancery. I didn't even recognize my own page. :)
