In our sites we use two default fonts. These fonts have been chosen for their aesthetic, simplicity and readability. They are the default fonts in our sites and are applied by default in the WYSIWYG editor and via the ribbon.

For consistency, it is imperative to only use these two fonts—do not add additional font styling via in-line markup. You can use bold and italics to add emphasis to paragraph content. For more about our default HTML elements, see our Basic HTML Guide​

Body Paragraph Font - Source Sans Pro

This is Source Sans Pro, the standard body font for responsive DePaul websites. This hardy typeface is made specifically for the screen and works well at varying resolutions and sizes. Source Sans Pro comes standard with all new DePaul websites. There is no need to manually apply or select this font as it is automatically applied out of the box.

Heading Font - Open Sans Condensed

See that heading above? That's Open Sans Condensed. The responsive framework automatically applies Open Sans Condensed to all headings. Heading 1, or H1, is always used as the page title and H2 through H4 can be used to add hierarchical structure to content. Headings differ from each other enough in order to establish the content hierarchy of a page. There's no need to style headings individually—simply highlight any text and select a heading from the Markup Styles menu in the ribbon.
