Subject [jira] [Commented] (CB-43) Embedded fonts fail in iOS 5
Date Thu, 02 Feb 2012 19:22:53 GMT


Brennan Novak commented on CB-43:

I am not "exactly" sure, but most likely can be ignored. As the problem was that I had been
including a font which as of iOS 5 was natively bundled into iOS. I was able to do multiple
methods of including the font for older versions of iOS and make it work with iOS by figuring
out the right CSS attributes.

5 or that PhoneGap.js is not finding these resources that are available?
