http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-CSS2/fonts.html#sans-serif-def has a very long description of font specifications as used in CSS. The various font groups are defined, with examples. For Fantasy, the examples are "Latin fonts
Alpha Geometrique, Critter, Cottonwood, FB Reactor, Studz" and Comic Sans MS is not among the examples. I don't have any of the fonts mentioned.

I agree with you that Comic Sans is not a likely choice for me in designing a web site, but I am reluctant to get involved with design decisions like that when my objective is to get the HTML and CSS to validate, and to reduce the number of warnings in the CSS validation. There are 62 warnings in the CSS validation. Warnings about no generic family font are 15 of those warnings.
