Fonts Overview

Windows Mobile Not SupportedWindows Embedded CE Supported
8/28/2008

The Fonts Catalog items for Windows Embedded CE provide you with a wide range of fonts. A font is a collection of glyphs that share a common design and is characterized by its typeface, style, and size. Some fonts, such as Symbol, Webdings, and Wingding, provide special characters that are not available in other fonts. Other fonts, such the SimSun, MingLiU, MS Gothic, and Gulim (GL_CE) fonts, provide support for East Asian languages. If you want to reduce the size of your run-time image, make sure that you add only a limited number of fonts to your OS design.

This topic lists all the font functionalities, components and modules, and the Sysgen variables that are necessary to enable the font functionalities.
