No, because you used an equals instewd of a colon. Also, inthe 'do whatI
mean' department, you probably didn't mean to specify a single font whose
name is Verdana,Arial,Sans-Serif (including two commas in the name).

body { font-family: "Verdana","Arial","Sans-Serif"; font-size:9pt; }

Specifies three actual fonts and no generic fonts.
