    Installing Custom Font on S40?

    Hi,

    I want Malayalam fonts in my web apps application for s40 .
    Is it possible to install custom fonts on S40 phones? If it is possible, can I have some pointers to do this in s40 web apps?

    Thanks!

    The Nokia font is the only one available for use in web apps as of now: Additional fonts cannot be downloaded.
    The font does, however, offer several point sizes and text effects such as bold and italic.

    Do you have an issue with rendering malayalam with Nokia font?

    You can't use them, the S40 Web App platform doesn't support using other font yet.

    Just a guess: The're different implementations. I.e., the simulator is an "approximator", not the same code with the same behaviour.

    As mentioned above: "S40 Web App platform doesn't support using other font yet. " (And "yet" might also mean "never", but only Nokia knows for sure.)

    Also, use the CODE tags, when you post code. It'll preserve formatting/intendation and keep the code readable

    Re: Installing Custom Font on S40?

    Exactly what Petrib said - unfortunately, the simulator is a (webkit based) different implementation from the actual Nokia Xpress browser you have on the phone. There are many things that work on the simulator which are not supported (and mentioned to be not supported in the documentation) by the S40 Web App platform.

    Again, custom font is not supported in S40 Web Apps. If you feel it is a really important feature - you can raise a feature request here.
