Code:
h1 { font-family: Verdana, Arial, sans-serif; }
This uses, for <h1> elements, the Verdana font if available, else Arial, and as a last choice the default sans-serif font (which sometimes the user can select and sometimes it's hard-coded in the rendering software).

This is mainly for web pages and browsers, which usually can access to the whole set of system-installed fonts, and thus "available" has a meaning for them. In current ebook readers, however, there is often no way to install fonts, and when there is, the actual rendering software has no way (or is not adequately configured) to access them, so in practice there is no font "available" (unless it's embedded).
