I am looking to use a range of HTML fonts like the on the site below however I am struggling to find a reference site which has a list of HTML which can be used.
Does anyone know a good reference site for HTML fonts.

What you're looking for is called font stacks.
http://cssfontstack.com/ - shows the "typical" fonts as people have installed, broken by category (serif, san serif, etc).
http://www.sitepoint.com/eight-definitive-font-stacks/ - an older SP thread, but shows fonts by stack, which puts fonts with common characteristics beyond category together. I would strongly suggest reading this and if you need more, google font stacks

You might also find this recent thread on fonts helpful.

Technically speaking you can use any font as long as it is installed on the client computer.
There are also ways now to embed fonts or something so that the client doesn't have to have it already.
There are however only a few fonts that you can be sure will work on 99% of clients computers. You can find a list here: http://www.w3schools.com/cssref/css_websafe_fonts.asp

I don't know how accurate the other OS lists are, but of " ... the list of fonts supported by most Unix System variants", the only one my Linux install has is Symbol. Likewise, the W3schools reference shows several font stacks which don't include any font on my system - and I do have the MS Core Fonts installed.
