Font tags may work, but they are no longer to be used as they have been deprecated. Same for the center tags and a bunch more. New standards are coming out (HTML 5.0/CSS 3.0). I hope all browser developers cut out ALL backward compatibility for these browsers so people will start making proper web pages with the correct coding.
You need to use CSS. Example:
font-family: verdana, arial, 'sans serif';
font-family: 'century schoolbook', 'times new roman', times, serif;
Then all the stuff that is NOT between the "h1" tags will have your "basefont".

When putting in fonts that have compound word, you MUST put them in quote marks.
