Cursive font in PDF generated from Visualforce

Hi Everyone,

I have found muliple articles about this but nothing seems to work for me. I have a requriement to create a PDF form that has cursive writing on it. I have been tooling around with adding style sheets and inline style classes and even inline style attributes. Nothing I try seems to work. The font styles work on a regular visualforce page but as soon as I try to render the page as a PDF the font styles go away. I can't seem to get them to stay on the page when the visualforce page is set to render as a PDF. Is there a trick that will allow me to generate a PDF from the system and customize the font style. I guess it does not have to be a visualforce page but that's what I have tried so far. I have not looked into any other way to get this requirerment done. I have run up against a brick wall and can't seem to get around it.

Thanks for the help,
Danny

As per http://www.salesforce.com/us/developer/docs/pages/Content/pages_output_pdf_supported_fonts.htm
"Visualforce PDF rendering supports a limited set of fonts."

Please read the article for more information.

Hi Vijay,

So there is no hack or trick that will allow me to add support for different fonts? I think I have seem articles saying that the Visualforce PDF rendering tool is based on an engine called Flying Saucer. Here is a link to the article stating that the PDF rendering enginge is base on flying saucer: http://salesforce.stackexchange.com/questions/38522/setting-font-face-for-visualforce-email-pdf-attachments-messagingattachment
