My guess is that the combination arial, helvetica, sans-serif is the most widely used font declaration. body {font-family: arial, helvetica,sans-serif;}

I would however suggest you also try out verdana. This font was specifically made for screen reading and some experts consider a font like this (the characters are wider) to increase the usability of a website. body {font-family: verdana, arial, helvetica, sans-serif;}
