There are a few fonts (added by default) that you can use in CSS formatting.  They are:

 

serif, sans-serif, monospace, Courier, TimesRoman,

 

For Unicode content, you can use the following fonts for Asian languages (i.e., Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Japanese, Korean):

 

STSong-Light, MSung-Light, HeiseiMin-W3,  HYGoThic-Medium

 

Note : "STSong-Light" gives the best result for Chinese; "MSung-Light" for Traditional Chinese; "HeiseiMin-W3" for Japanese; and "HYGoThic-Medium" for Korean.

 

*{font-family:HYGoThic-Medium;}
