I need my site to have monotype fonts that work with Firefox especially. I am using style="font-family: courier new" and this works fine in windows firefox and explorer but on Linux this does not work. I have also tried courier with no luck. What should I use so that Linux will work? Also, I haven't tried it on a Mac yet.

use font-family:monospace and the browser will use whatever monospaced font is default for the computer where the page is loaded.
