My web app is targeted for Blackberry 5.0 and above devices.
On 5.0 devices, web page UI gets distored when there are more upper case letters.
So i thought can if i use fixed width font, this'll fix the problem. But i'm not sure if 5.0 supports default fixed width font or does it allow to install it using font-face CSS property?

Custom fonts should be supported, as it's part of standard HTML5.

Thanks for reply.
I'm facing this problem for Blackberry browser 5.0 where HTML5 is not supported.
So cannot use Font-face CSS property.
Is there any hack or work around for this?

Maybe the usual font family fallback list will suffice:
font-family: myMonospaceFont, "Andale Mono", Monaco, monospace;
Anyway, I often find myself setting different figures in the css "width" element and "maxLength" of input fields, just to overcome these types of problems. And do you specify sizes in "em" units? Good practice to do so, that should be the width of large letters.
