Install System Font


Is there a way on Tablet OS to install font as system font?


In the BlackBerry OS 5.0 there was a FontManager load method, and using  SYSTEM_FONT flag font was installed for whole system, not only for application.

FontManager.getInstance().load(fontStream, fontName, FontManager.SYSTEM_FONT);


The problem is that Tablet does not display Georgian Unicode symbols, neither do BlackBerry devices, but for BB devices I made application which loads Sylfaen.ttf font using FontManager.load method and after that problem was fixed.
