Setting Web Fonts

Microsoft provides ways for you to have your Excel data available on the Web. You do this by saving your worksheet data in a Web-page format. You can specify which fonts you want Excel to use when it creates Web pages from the information in a workbook. You can set the default fonts that Excel uses by following these steps:

  1. Display the Excel Options dialog box. (In Excel 2007 click the Office button and then click Excel Options. In Excel 2010 and Excel 2013 display the File tab of the ribbon and then click Options.)
  2. At the left side of the dialog box click Advanced.
  3. Scroll through the available options until you see the General section. (See Figure 1.)
  4. Figure 1. The Advanced options of the Excel Options dialog box.

  5. Click on the Web Options button. Excel displays the Web Options dialog box.
  6. Make sure the Fonts tab is selected. (See Figure 2.)
