Today I was confronted with a little Problem: my Windows Phone App refused to show me the Font I choose – also other thinks didn’t work.

Although the Visual Studio Designer did show the Fonts:


Unfortunately there isn’t much left in the Emulator:


Reason for this:

Windows Phone doesn’t include all the typos Windows does

That means while choosing a certain typo you should pay attention if they are compatible with the windows phone.

I found these two pages with a list of the supported Fonts:

Fonts in Silverlight for Windows Phone

Text and fonts for Windows Phone

P.S: Don’t worry, Comic Sans is still working Zwinkerndes Smiley
