Custom Fonts for WM 6.5, WM 6.5.x (with or without Manila)

Thanks to the following people for inspiring and helping out...

MysticGenius - This would not have started without you.
jonbus - for providing Century Gothic font.

Font Index

1. Calibri

2. Droid Sans

3. Segoe UI

4. Trebuchet MS

5. Tahoma

6. Nina (Will display white patches in the Year View in Manila)

7. Zegoe UI (This font will display jagged edges in Manila)

8. Nokia

9. Helvetica

10. Monotype Corsiva

11. Century Gothic (from jonbus)

Note: Using condensed fonts, like Segoe UI Condensed or Nina, will cause the Year view to display with white blocks. Using wide fonts like Verdana will cause Manila to display data with ellipses, even in Month View of Calendar.

Sweet! Have been waiting for this for AGES!

I downloaded the Droid Sans one, but I believe it showed up as Calibri instead... or some other font, just not Droid.



But nevertheless, good job on replacing fonts =)

Tahoma is nice too *wink wink*

Thanks for this. However I also need Chinese support on an english rom. I already installed a droid font with Chinese support. Could I still install your fonts over that?

My font will overwrite everything and it does not have chinese support. Do you have the Droid font with chinese support? If yes, send it to me and I will create a new cab for you.

Very interesting job there mate. Just a small question though. If anything goes wrong, or if the fonts won't work in my language, can i revert to the original simply by uninstalling the cab, or do I have to go through hard reset? Thanks in advance. Btw a Monotype Cosiva would be also good i think...
