Android custom fonts in web scroller native control...

I agree, all paths should be relative. Try that.
Also put an 

"answer the fontNames" at the app start up and see if all the fonts are
there.

Hi Ralph. 

I have a Media folder which contains all assets including fonts. This folder
is included in standalone settings. It works under iOS - the Livecode UI
displays fonts and native web scroller using CSS displays fonts. In Android,
fonts appear in UI but not in scroller. I think this is to do with the path
I have set up in the CSS - it works differently on different platforms. I
think I need to make the path to the fonts relative to the temp HTML file I
am writing out - I can't test until Monday though. 

Thanks for your advice - will feed back any results. 

Kind regards,  Paul.
