Google fonts

Create a new html document and then visit https://www.google.com/fonts to get started. As of May 17, 2019  there are 915 free font families available via Google Fonts. 

If you are someone who enjoys having a lot of fonts at your disposal, Google Fonts is a great resource. Any font that you link to and use from Google Fonts should work beautifully for you. You never have to worry whether or not the font is available on your visitors' computer, or going through the more tedious process of downloading free fonts, and embedding the font files on your website. There's a lot to like here!

Google frequently changes their interface, so rather than offer precise instructions that don't work, your job is to figure out to find a font named Parisienne and to get it to work properly on your page.  The main things that you need to understand are that
a. all of the font information is stored on Google's servers so all you have to do is obtain a link to the Parisienne font and place it within your document's head tags or opt for the import option (Google will explain the difference between the two options).
b. once you have the link, apply the font to some text by adding it to your body or some other css element.
(for example:  body {font-family: 'Parisienne', cursive; font-size: 44;} )
Last time I looked, Google had a handy getting started guide linked to each of their fonts just in case you need additional assistance.

Once you successfully implement Parisienne, repeat the procedure with a couple of additional fonts until you are REALLY comfortable with the process.

The main takeaway here is that Google fonts are free and really easy to use once you learn how and can be applied anywhere you like within a webpage or website. Plus there are almost 1,000 of them!
