Override document fonts

New in this release is the ability to override the fonts that are used in a XPS document by a font that is installed on the local system. The new static method OverrideFont(String, String) overrides any font with a given font family name by a system installed font. ClearFontOverrides removes all overrides.

The following snippet demonstrates how the Arial font is overriden by a system installed arial.ttf. Use the Silverlight API System.Windows.Media.Fonts.SystemTypefaces to get the list of installed system fonts.

C#
using FirstFloor.Documents.Fonts;

GlyphTypefaceInfo.OverrideFont("Arial", "arial.ttf");

Overriding a font is a Document Toolkit global setting and is applied to all rendered documents.
