    CSS font-family ignored by ovi browser

    I believe css font-family is ignored by ovi browser. Is there any work-around?

    Current version of Ovi Browser supports font-size, font-style and font-weight. So font-family is being ignored, yes.

    Supporting only limited amount of fonts is common in mobile devices, and there's no work-around as such. It's of course possible to create some brand-specific texts - such as static titles, subtitles etc - by using images. Rest of the page would use the device font.

    I know the next step would be to display individual letters as images, but creating texts with that approach would be a huge performance hit for the devices with limited rendering capabilities.

    It also seems to me like there is a minimum font-size. I don't see a different between 8px and 6px on device...
