Re: List of Font names available for BB10 app development using html5

Are you worried about the specific fonts?

 

The browser does font substitution so - lets say I want Times New Roman and it ain't on the device...

 

A suitable replacement font will replace the TNR bit of text

 

The system is aware of lots of fonts it hasn't got so can do sensible swaps when needed

 

You can always package your own font if you want an exactly as designed look

 

Google have many fonts available for such situations abd WebWorks fully supports the @font CSS directive

Re: List of Font names available for BB10 app development using html5

Thanks for the reply. When I try different fonts in the Ripple, I see the fonts displayed correct. But when loaded to the device, it does not, and it displays device specific font. This is why I was wondering if we can get hold of the fonts available in a BB10 device so that we can use them according to our taste economically instead of going after our own fonts.
