The font you use must be installed on the target system in order to be shown correctly. So in fact there are not so much fonts you can be sure to be at the visitors computer: Arial, Times, Verdana (?),..
You can also name alternative fonts, separated by commas:
<font face="Kindergarten,Arial,Helvetica" size="7" color="#000099">kidz</font>

The actual name of your Kindergarten font may be more than a single
word? For example, "Comic Sans MS" is one of the popular 3-word fonts.
To find out what the real name is double-click My Computer, then Control
Panel, then Fonts. Click View then select Hide Variations. Press the K
key to get to the fonts that begin with K and look for the exact name/
spelling for your Kindergarten font. This is the exact string of
characters you need to use in your <font face= tag. For example:
<font face="Kindergarten Classic" size="7" ...
Now, because you have that font installed on your system, the "kidz"
string should appear the you want . . . on your system. Anyone else
visiting that page (once it's posted to the 'net of course) that does
not have that font installed on their system will not see the "kidz"
string in your "Kindergarten Classic" font. For this reason many usually
select a second and even a third more popular font that would suffice
and specify them too. For example:
<font face="Kindergarten Classic, Comic Sans MS" size="7" ...
