Android custom fonts in web scroller native control...

I don't dynamically build pages but I do display pre-built pages on both iOS
and Android using the EXACT same code. The only thing a can suggest is
making sure the path in the font reference in the html(css) is correct. Are
the fonts in the "copy file" pane(or some subfolder) in the Standalone
settings? Downloading  and loading the fonts at runtime can't be done(at
least so says the dictionary).

Hi all. 

I'm the OP :-) been out if touch since I posted. Thanks to everyone for
getting back. 

I'm using the technique of dynamically building and HTML page, writing it
locally (into the cache folder) then loading it up in a scroller. All fine,
except fonts don't load. Maybe writing the fonts to the cache folder will
solve this - can't check. This whole issue is handled differently in iOS and
Android it seems and I can't see anything on any documentation about it. 

Kind regards, Paul.
