Erik, thank you for your response. I've looked at the codestyle page and 
Safari does display the cursive fonts ok. So, I must be doing something 
wrong... I've put up a very simple test page:

http://www.webfooteddesigns.co.uk/test/test.html (The css is included in 
the page.)

When I look at it in Firefox I see the correct fonts, but in Safari I 
just see the same sans-serif font for all three headings.

I'd be very grateful if you could look at it and tell me what you think.

Best wishes
