From version 6.5.439, ScriptX supports retrieving and specifying the font used to render the document header and footer. The use of this feature requires Internet Explorer 8 or later.

Specifies or retrieves the description of the font to use. The font is described using a css style definition, one or more of the following semicolon-delimited values:

Value Description
font-family The font family name to use.
font-size The size to use, units should be pixels.
color The colour for rendering the text, given as an RGB value - for example, rgb(255,0,0)
font-weight The weight of the font as normal or bold
font-style The font style, as italic, normal, or oblique

Note: No error is thrown if this property is used with versions of Internet Explorer prior to 8 - settings are simply ignored.
