The time of Arial, Verdana and Times New Roman fonts dominating the web
is over. And of course the possibility using web fonts make it needless to have a nice font for print and a standard font for web.
Todays problems about fonts are more a license problem using a font for web and getting a font that has more then the typical 4 styles normal, bold, italic, and bold italic to fit the needs of print too. Besides that you have often to check if the font supports special charackters too. I collected this list of ncie fonts that should care about all requirements of web and print usage.Serif fontsNeuton
* Josefin Slab
* Roboto Slab
* Averia SerifSans Serif fontsOpenSuse font "Fifth Leg"
* Terminal Dosis
* Titillium Text
* Ubuntu Font
* Source Sans
* Open Sans
and Open Sans Condensed
* M+ 1C
* Eau Sans
* Android Font Roboto and Roboto Condensed
* DejaVu Sans and DejaVu Sans CondensedFont Websites
You can explore a lot more free fonts at Google Fonts
, Open Font Library
and at Font Squirrel

Many people ask "Is there something like Dreamweaver for Linux?", the answer is "Yes". Meanwhile Kompozer
reaches the Beta 3 state and BlueGriffon
development is back again too.
Both tools may not as powerfull as Dreamweaver but nice for people looking for a WYSIWYG web editor. If you looking for a powerfull tool then better try Aptana Studio
