When you use the XAML editor in Visual Studio 2010 to enter a value for the FontFamily property, Intellisense in the editor will show you a list of fonts available on the development system. In the example below, the dropdown shows the Parsons font as a possible font choice, since it has been installed on the development system.
This font will appear correctly when the application is run on the development system, but will get displayed on a target system only if it is also installed on that system. If the font is not present, some other font will be substituted.
