Fonts in Silverlight for Windows Phone

Silverlight

Font support is controlled by the fonts that are already present in ROM on the device. No fonts are installed with Silverlight.

Note Note:

Web-safe fonts are recommended, such as Verdana and the Segoe WP fonts. Visual Studio 2010 Express for Windows Phone includes filters that show supported fonts on Windows Phone OS 7.0.

If the fonts that you want are not present on the target device, we recommend that you deploy them with the application. We recommend that you use the TrueType font format for fonts you need in the application. Embedded fonts must be added to the DLL or XAP as embedded resources to be supported by the runtime for managed-code scenarios.

The following table shows the fonts that are present in ROM on Windows Phone OS 7.0.
