    Question Font family and font size on Opera Mini under Series 60

    Hi,

    I develop Web pages optimized for the Opera Mini browser. On Windows Mobile, the display is OK. But when I try to display the pages on a Nokia N95 phone (Symbian Series 60), there are several problems.

    - The fonts are not the expected ones (the fonts on the stylesheet are helvetica, arial, sans-serif).
    - More over, the text size is too big and the size set in the CSS stylesheet has no effect on the display.

    1) How to get the right fonts ?

    2) Which fonts by default are available on Opera Mini for Series 60 ?

    3) How to set the font size (the size "small", "medium", "large" are not available on the Series 60).

    Best Regards,

    Xavier Ottolini

    it is hard to say on 3rd party application that is not open source, so I would start by checking the developers home site, and seeing whether they have published some information in there.

    I agree with yucca.To 3rd party applications,like Opera,because it normally do not open its source, it is very difficult to do some customable setting without help from their developers.

    Hi Lming and Symbianyucca,

    Opera Mini displays the pages through a proxy hosted on the Opera servers.

    Opera Mini is built in Java. I suppose that the fonts are available through the Java virtual machine.

    Thanks anyway.

    Hi,

    I did not find any information about the available fonts in the Opera Mini reference manual. I posted a topic in the Opera Forum. Here is the answer :

    "Opera Mini is a Java Mobile application (midlet), and it can use only those fonts which it gets from the Java VM - so usually only the system font."

    Here is the forum topic on the Opera Web site :
    http://my.opera.com/community/forums....dml?id=255158


    Is it possible to know exactly which fonts are available from the JVM ? Where can I get this information ?

    Best regards,

    Xavier Ottolini
