In order to have RhoElements display non-european fonts, you must install on the device a suitable true-type font that includes glyphs for your language. There are several fonts available online. Here are a couple of resources you may wish to check out. Google's Droid font worked in our tests using comparison bitmap glyphs http://www.droidfonts.com/ (and is pretty small compared to other fonts multi-lingual fonts). There is also a site here that has links to several other sites that offer similar fonts http://www.omniglot.com/links/fonts.htm (by the way, I apologise on their behalf for using the term "free foreign fonts", clearly they are not foreign if you are from the country that is using that font!!!).
Once you have selected a font, you should download the TTF font, copy it to your device's Windows\Fonts folder and then update the RhoElements config file to use that font as the default font (unless you specify it in your CSS styling).
Here is an example that uses the Droid font:
I hope this helps,
Hi James, thank you for your advice.
I have tested RhoElements on Japanese Windows Mobile 6.5.3 for ES400.
I tried to edit config.xml to modify FontFamily value="MS UI Gochic" (Japanese font) as you adviced.
Displayed font was changed to "MS UI Gochic", but still displayed incorrect characters.
It seems that RhoElements V188.8.131.52 doesn't support Japanese (and possibly other multi byte languages) encoding like as Unicode, Shift-JIS, EUC.
Thanks in advance.
Is ‘MS UI Gochic’ a TTF font, normally the Microsoft fonts are AC3 fonts. AC3 are not supported as they are Microsoft proprietary.
I faced the same issue on Chinese character, I test Droid Sans and SimSun font refer to your suggestion, but it did not work for RhoElements, could you like to confirm current version RhoElements support Chinese character? Or when it will support Chinese?
Which font did you try?
I used Droid Sans and SimSun, I tested gb2312, gb18030, utf-8 for charset in html file, they all do not work. I attached my font config and test.html as below.
Thank you again,

Just to give a little more information, the font I specified in my config should have actually been "Droid Sans Fallback". Here is my config, apologies for any confusion:
Yes, Droid Sans Fallback support CJK. It worked well.
Thank you again,
I'm trying to display Japanese with RhoElements 184.108.40.206 on ET1.
I specified DroidSansFallback.ttf in font-face section, but Japanese character displays square mark.
RhoElements 220.127.116.11 help file describes HTMLStyles\FontFamily is not applicable to Enterprise Tablet.
Could you please advice how can I specify the Droid Sans Fallback to display Japanese?
(following is test html)
<META http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8">
src: url('fonts/DroidSansFallback.ttf') format('truetype');
