Linux has no Verdana by default

It is not the question.
I can install Verdana font - no problem. But i have small advice to author of the course - Eric, please, allow to students use alternative fonts too. For example, not strict font-family: Verdana; as it is right now, but font-family: Verdana, Sans;.

UPD: I've found notice about fallback at the next step. Perhaps, notice need to be slightly earlier.

I'll second this, it might be a good idea to use a more generic font, or else teach about fallback fonts earlier.

@Brett, if it was possible to downvote a comment, your's would be -1 right now. @Ivan Belash wasn't asking for help, he was pointing out a problem in the lesson.
