Hello

I am trying my hand at website building. For the experienced website builders out there, what do you recommend as the best fonts and font-family that will display on IE, Firefox and Opera (Windows and *nix for the last two), and Safari (MacOSX) in terms of aesthetics and availability?

By inspection of this site (http://www.upsdell.com/BrowserNews/res_fonts.htm), I'm thinking of arial, helvetica, Trebuchet MS, sans-serif. Any thoughts?

Thanks
