    Hi
    In my iphone app, I have to use "Trebuchet MS" font. The screens are designed using the IB. When I select "Bold" for a UILabel the label text does not appear on the IPhone device[Iphone OS 2.2]. Is it due to the fact that iphone does not support "Bold" for "Trebuchet MS" font? Can anybody tell me what font(s) with what characteristics Regular/Bold/Italic and size(s) is supported by iphone?
    Thanks

    This really useful table tells you what should be included. It appears that Trebuchet MS should be there as a full family (including bold) so your problem would appear to be different that what you first thought...

    Are you sure that list is correct? It claims that Courier isn't present, but when I check all the fonts available on both the iPod Touch OS 2.1.1 and iPhone OS 2.2, I get the list below. Do you think that OS 2.0 didn't include as many fonts?
