Default font-family: "Comic Sans MS"

Code:
font-family: "Comic Sans MS";
is specified several times in a web site I am modifying.

"Line : 79 (Level : 2) font-family: You are encouraged to offer a generic family as a last alternative : .p3" is what the CSS validation warns me.

I will offer sans-serif as a generic alternative, but I wonder whether there is an alternative to MAC users, who may not have Comic Sans MS as a font, or an alternative in general, other than choices like Tahoma or Helvetica.

http://bancomicsans.com/home.html is a site devoted to banning Comic Sans MS. I must say that I did not design this web site, or pick the fonts.
