Changing fonts in your WordPress CSS Style Sheet is the most effective and reliable way to control the fonts in your WordPress theme for your WordPress web site.

I have found that when changing fonts in your WordPress CSS Style Sheet, a major font that I will change frequently is the anchor tag that controls the attributes of links through out the WordPress Theme. Links ( the anchor tags indicated by the “a” in html and css ) are all over a page or post. Some are in the Header, some in the Footer, some in a Widget, some in the page or post itself. In this situation, rarely do you want all link attributes throughout the page or site to be the same.
