time for an infusion release?

Hi Johnny,

I don't know all the details of the implementation of UIO at this point. So someone else may be better to answer, but I'll give the first pass a shot.

First off, which version of Infusion are you using; 1.4 or some pre-release version straight from the git repo? As for the font not changing, that's somewhat expected. UIO will actually pick from a selection of fonts, depending on what's available on your system. The default will be to use Georgia for Times New Roman.

https://github.com/fluid-project/infusion/blob/master/src/webapp/framework/fss/css/fss-text.css#L106

Hope that clears things up a bit. I really appreciate that you continue to experiment with and surface issue for UIO. It's really helpful.

Thanks
Justin

Which is most likely documented somewhere, but I don't recall reading it anywhere, not that I've read much on UIO before this. Not that this behaviour is necessarily undesirable but you are free to do whatever you want on the html element (up to, and including, 260%, it seemed silly to exceed that). And what is most interesting is everything still works (testing still pending).

I figured it might be a result of my using the html element for all the font goodness, but no deal. Is this supposed to happen? Does "Times New Roman" have to match exactly for it to work? Or should any Times font suffice? Before I crack off I should really check if I even have "Times New Roman" installed on my machine. Oops, too late.
