Hi,
Thanks for providing the css validation site.
I keep getting suggestions to use 'font' instead of 'font-family' in my 
css.  However I note that most of the online tutorials I have checked as 
well as a couple of books I have seen almost always use 'font-family'.  I 
have also noticed that when I convert to 'font' the first type specified in 
list is not what displays on the browser but the browser's default font 
(tested on IE6.0 and Opera6.01).
Could you provide a link to the definite word on the subject?
Regards, Tom Thekathyil
