    How do I change the font type for my blog that’s using the pretty theme?

    find the following code:
    body,
    h1,
    h2,
    h2 a,
    h2 a:visited,
    h3,
    h4,
    h5,
    h6,
    p,
    select,
    textarea {

    and change font-family: "Century Gothic",AppleGothic,Arial,sans-serif;
    to your font of choice

    hope that helps!

    what do I change then? The part that is “Century Gothic”? Or do I change all the 4 different font types listed? Or does each font represent a font in some areas of the blog, if so, which font is for which section of the blog?

    font-family: "Century Gothic",AppleGothic,Arial,sans-serif;

    You should change the Century Gothic font, and quite possibly the AppleGothic font (if you don’t like that particular font). ┬áThe reason you see four fonts is that some browsers can’t read certain fonts, so there are fall-back fonts; Arial is a pretty standard web-friendly font and can be read by pretty much all browsers, and doesn’t need to be replaced. The same with san-serif, which isn’t a font per se, but a style of font. (Arial is a sans-serif font; Times New Roman, on the other hand is a serif font).
