I think the key is to establish safe fonts. By safe I mean fonts that are installed on most systems by default.

Thank you Mack. But are there any of those fonts that are installed on most computers that tend to look better in browsers?

Google web safe fonts.

Thanks again, I'll try that.

Also, no matter what font you use, yellow text on a black background is *not* going to be easy to read. If the text is important, use boring old black-on-white or a close variant, just like Google, and WebmasterWorld, and newspapers, and magazines...
My first reaction upon seeing a site with text on a deeply-colored background is to switch off colors in my browser. Or if the content doesn't appear to be exactly what I'm looking for, I just leave...

Second jdMorgan... do avoid the ANSI BBS look unless there is a real reason to go retro. Sections of a page in contrast can be useful... but the whole website in contrast will lose a lot of visitors.
