I have downloaded and reviewed hundreds of fonts. However I am not finding fonts that are usable for creating titles and headings for web pages.

I am looking for fonts which look professional, clean even when in bold. The letters have clean outlines. Basically ones which are not artsy. kinda wide to show texture & bevels clearly but not requiring much space than normal.

I hope I am explaining this clearly. I don't know what I want exactly but fonts which web designers usually use.

If I get some font names or web sites which provide these kinds of fonts, I will have a head start.

To used in Windows.

Thanks.

Also an awsome website is www.whatthefont.com.

You can type in any text and preview the top fonts.

There's only a handful of fonts you CAN use in a website, mainly Times New Roman, Aerial, Courier New and Verdana . .

I prefer fonts without serifs, myself... like verdana, or franklin gothic medium.

What are you looking at them with...  just Character Map?

Fonts are a matter of taste to some extent, but also convey messages with different elements of style, boldness, curves, etc. Selection of the 'right' font for a certain project is an important part of the design process.

For a range of professional-quality modern fonts for free, try here: http://www.smashingmagazine.com/category/fonts/ (jump to the articles on "40+ Excellent Freefonts..." and "80 Beautiful Typefaces..."

Cheers,
