I am trying to set an alternative to Mac Lucida Grande font with Lucida Sans Unicode for Windows users and found out that I see no bold style of it in my Windows 7. Is that common for all Windows 7? How about Windows XP?

What we want to do is pick only the good traits: the normal face of Lucida Sans Unicode, and the bold and italic variants of Lucida Sans. The solution is to “create” a hybrid font set:

body {
    font-family: "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;

strong, em, b, i {
    font-family: "Lucida Sans", "Lucida Sans Unicode", "Lucida Grande", Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
