Which font-family is verdana a member of?

I don't know if this will help, but try... I didn't feel like reading through the whole thing or posting the text either - too long!
good luck!

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">from the site doodlebug pointed out:

Microsoft's new Verdana typeface family consists of four TrueType fonts created specifically to address the challenges of on-screen display.

Hence it is it's own family

Yes, you are indeed correct. Verdana is it's own font family - whereas Verdana Condensed, or Verdana Bold are children of that font family. In other words, varriations in the stroke or spacing of the characters, but the characters retain the same basic shape and style.

There are two basic families of fonts, however - Serif and Sans Serif (or simlpy Sans) which Verdana must fit into. Serif fonts are characterized by frilly "tails" on the stokes of the letters, which lead the eye from one character to the next. Almost like cursive writing, but not connected. Sans serif fonts are characterized simply by the abscense of this serif (as the name implies). The font that you are reading this message in, is a sans serif font.
