    What font set does Apple use for main body text on www.apple.com/mac
    I am refering only to the smaller text such as ....
    "Leopard has over 300 amazing new features. But most impressive, it just works the way you want it to."

    Is it: <font face="LucidaGrande, Geneva, Arial, Helvetica"> ???
    I can't tell from the source code! Would like to use same font hierarchy for my website.

    body { font: 12px/18px "Lucida Grande", Geneva, Arial, Verdana, sans-serif; background-color:#fff; color:#333; }

    Hope it helps

    Why have they expressed the font size as a fraction 12px/18px ?
    When I copy and paste the text from a browser into Word, it seems to be 11px.

    12px is for the font size, and 18px is for the line-height. Word measures fonts in pt (points), not pixels (px) which is why you see a "difference."
