Gets or sets the font style for the content in this element.
Assembly: System.Windows (in System.Windows.dll)
XMLNS for XAML: Not mapped to an xmlns.
Dependency property identifier field: FontStyleProperty
This property can select only from fonts that exist in a font family and the corresponding glyphs. Not all font families have an italic form available. Setting to Italic if using a font family that has no corresponding italic form font does not cause programmatic shear effect applied to the normal font glyphs, and the Normal form is used instead as a fallback. Font fallback behavior does not change the property value, the property will remain as the value you set it to despite whatever visual behavior results due to font fallback.
