This is a collection of frequently asked questions and their answers about how Kendo UI hybrid mobile components work and behave on the Windows Phone 8 platform.
Local web fonts are not loaded in Windows Phone 8 (WP8) HTML5/PhoneGap apps or fonts loaded from local CSS. According to some sources, external CSS should load web fonts, but Kendo UI is not able to confirm this. As a workaround, use normal images for icons in WP8 HTML5/PhoneGap applications.
The example below demonstrates the meta tag you need to add to work around this issue.
<meta name="msapplication-tap-highlight" content="no" />
The Hybrid UI framework adapts to the current theme in WP8 and changes the background and highlight colors of your application. In the browser this is semi-automatic when you click inside the application to focus it, but in PhoneGap it happens automatically on the application resume after you change the theme.
