Trebuchet MS usage

Hi everyone!

I'm new to this.. any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

Mark recommends using Arial, Verdana or Times New Roman for the websites.

But I find the Trebuchet MS font to be very neat and readable. Is it common enough in everyone's computers for me to use it effectively on my website?

I'd say those fonts on the page Aletta linked to are probably the most common across various platforms. Just as a general rule of thumb, if the font you want to use is not one of those, that font would work better in an image so would best be reserved for your top of page image (or section headings) with one of the more common fonts chosen for the main text.
