The author can specify the intended font/s by passing that information in the 'html resource header' (idea defined especially for this purpose). THis customisation could extend further with the user/author being able to define anything, such as H1 should be an XG7...... This is not saying that the user and author must set up this information before they can use this browser, but that they have the option of customisation. I'm actually working on customisation of html documents, at the server before it ever reaches the browser, but this type of thing just described fits in well - it would make my job alot easier.
