Are you building on a Mac system and then transferring to Windows?  I've
found that I have to explicitly set font styling at startup when creating
cross-platform stacks that use something other than the default fonts and
sizes.  You might try this and see if it makes a difference.  Another option
might be to try htmlText styling.
