IPad – Is it possible to use custom fonts in Mobile Safari


I need to install a font in iPad2, and Safari must be able to use it. Is it possible?


I'm developing a iPad2 app using a web wrapper (PhoneGap) and a JS framework (Sencha Touch 2). I need to use custom fonts, for that I need to convert my TTF file (http://www.fontsquirrel.com/fontface/generator) and link the stylesheet.

No, you cannot install fonts on any iOS device without jail breaking or by creating an app.

But Safari can itself display fonts placed on a server with appropriate html code in the page.
