Standard Fonts

Qtopia provides a number of standard fonts together with language-specific fonts. The fonts and the available formats and font sizes are described in the sections below.

Language-specific Fonts

Most of the fonts only support a small subset of unicode characters. For instance it is not possible to use helvetica to display Chinese characters. To overcome this problem Qtopia allows the specification of default fonts for each language. The following table shows a small subset of languages and their associated font:

Japanesejapanese 23

To see how to customized/define what font to use for a given language and size of font see: Internationalization. If no suitable font is at hand it may be possible to use the unifont font as it provides the most complete set of characters.
