Setting Web Fonts

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Setting Web Fonts.

Word includes many features designed to make it work well with the Web. (Well, it included them starting with Word 2000 when Microsoft finally woke up to the Internet.) One such feature allows information to be saved in a Web-page format. This means you can create Web pages with Word, if desired.

The Web is a more limited environment than you may be used to in Word. One such area of limitation is in the fonts that are used. Typically, Web pages are constructed of one or two fonts, not the hundreds that are possible with Word. You can set the default fonts that Word uses when constructing Web pages by following these steps:

  1. Choose Options from the Tools menu. Word displays the Options dialog box.
  2. Make sure the General tab is selected. (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The General tab of the Options dialog box.

  4. Click on the Web Options button. Word displays the Web Options dialog box.
  5. Make sure the Fonts tab is selected. (See Figure 2.)
  6. Figure 2. The Fonts tab of the Web Options dialog box.

  7. Using the Proportional Font drop-down list, select the font you want used as a default for your Web pages.
  8. Using the Fixed-width Font drop-down list, select the font you want used when displaying monospace information on your Web pages.
  9. Using the Size controls, specify the respective default sizes for the fonts.
  10. Click on OK to close the Web Options dialog box.
  11. Click on OK to close the Options dialog box.
