I would like to know if I need a plugin to have a selection of fonts for use in creating pages in Word Press? Which of the many plugins would you recommend?

Christi Regarding this part of your answer --Great questions about fonts in WordPress! Fonts are controlled through your CSS stylesheet.

Where is my CSS Stylsheet and how can I select the desired styles for the theme I'm using which Twenty Eleven 1.3? I appreciate your other info about selecting plug ins , but want to clarify whether or not there are some options to me now and I just can't find them

Hello,

Great questions about fonts in WordPress! Fonts are controlled through your CSS stylesheet. While there are quite a few font plugins available for WordPress, there are some things to keep in mind. You can use the CSS @font-face rule to link to a font. Make sure you check the license or use Google Web Fonts http://www.google.com/webfonts for free open-source fonts. However, if the end user's browser does not support the @font-face rule (or only partially supports the rule) and the font is not installed on their computer, they will not be able to see the font you have chosen. This is why it's a good idea to not only use the @font-face rule, but to also define a family of fonts. This way you can make sure users see either the chose font, or at least something similar.

Make sure when you're picking a font plugin that it uses the @font-face rule to implement fonts and be sure to check the license on the fonts (some charge fees for commercial use, etc.). A few plugins you may want to check further into are:

-WP Google Fonts
-Ultimate Google Fonts
-Typekit Fonts for WordPress
-AnyFont

I also found this information about typography (fonts) that should be helpful:
