In Silverlight 2 Font URIs being restricted to Assembly resources; I fought against this a while ago in tactics since it breaks dynamic language support, but that didn't seem to startle people :(
For clarification, this doesn't work if the .ttf file is in the XAP; it must be an assembly reference.
This breaks DLR support (Ruby/Python/JScript) because there are no user-dlls required to make an application. A ugly work-around could be
to load a dummy DLL with the necessary resources, though I'm not sure if this works on a non-entry-point DLL.
Anyway, I'd like to figure out what I can do to nicely support custom fonts in Silverlight 2, and then what the best solution is to clean this up for the next release. Ideas?
