I use system fonts so no extra fonts have to be downloaded because of my website. I got these system font stacks from systemfontstack.com.
-apple-system, BlinkMacSystemFont, "Avenir Next", Avenir, "Helvetica Neue", Helvetica, Ubuntu, Roboto, Noto, "Segoe UI", Arial, sans-serif;
Menlo, Consolas, Monaco, "Liberation Mono", "Lucida Console", monospace;.
The teal is my favourite colour. The rest are just to achieve enough contrast whilst trying not to be too contrasty, which I also find hard on the eyes. The excessive in-between levels of black and grey are only there to make the code blocks look decent.

code in the middle of a line
;; some code ;; in a block that's really really long and needs to scroll horizontally because one line won't fit within my max width
small text, like the dates on the home page or in the footer
blockquote text but long enough to wrap onto two lines so I can see what it looks like and make sure the styles work well
Just a paragraph with emphasized text and strong text to see what normal text looks like. Followed by a page break, to see what those look like.
