This structure provides compatibility between Silverlight JavaScript and WPF properties that specify a font style. The compatibility requirement is that in JavaScript, the relevant properties referenced FontStyle, which is an enumeration, whereas WPF relevant properties referenced FontStyles, a class with static properties.

FontStyle is the value type for Silverlight properties or attributes that specify a font style value, but you must use static properties of FontStyles to provide a FontStyle value. In XAML, you specify the name of a FontStyles property as the attribute value. This functionality is enabled by native XAML parsing behavior that processes the string value.

WPF supports a FontStyles value of Oblique. Silverlight 5 does not support an Oblique value.
