CSS Georgia Font Stack with Tabular Numbers

Georgia is used as both a primary and fallback typeface in many CSS stacks, as it is available on nearly all macOS and Windows machines. However, by default Georgia uses “old style, proportional numbers” or “text figures.” That is, the numbers have different widths so they don’t align well in tables, and different vertical size and alignment. Many (most?) other typefaces use “tabular, lining numbers” with similar horizontal size and vertical alignment.
