Device font in Flex4:

You can specify any device font for the fontFamily property. Device font are not embedded in the SWF file. Flash player supports three device fonts:

1. _sans: The _sans device font is a sans-serif typeface; for example, Helvetica or Arial.
2. _serif: The _serif device font is a serif typeface; for example, Times Roman.
3. _typewriter: The _typewriter device font is a mono space font; for example, Courier.
