You cant.  Changing the DEFAULT browser font is something reserved for the USER and his browser.  If you look at NS.MOZ.FF, you will see the user can override any fonts you set in the code.  If you are talking about individual display fonts, then you just use the <FONT face="arial"> tag or whatever, that sets the font for individual lines, and text, but the person can override this in his browser if he wants.

If you ar talking about using substitute fonts, in case the browser doesnt have what you expect (e.g. MAC browser fonts are different than PCs), then you use CSS to define a FONT LIST, if not the first, use the next, etc.  this is how you would do that in your webpage --

A{  font-family : Verdana,Arial,sans-serif;  font-style : normal;  font-variant : normal;  text-decoration : none;  text-transform : none;}
That CSS says use Verdana first for links, then use Arial if verdana is not available, then last sans-serif.
