iOS Fonts no longer work in this version of XForms :

Android is fine.


                MainPage = new ContentPage()
                    Padding = 20,
                    Content = new Label()
                        FontSize = 50 ,
                        FontFamily = "Courier" ,
                        Text = "This is not Courier"

Confirmed FontFamily is no longer working correctly on iOS.  It will respect the font attributes (e.g bold) if a bold font is specified, but it does not seem to use the correct character set.  We are using a font that is all symbols for icons, and it is coming back with the ascii characters which are not included in that font.  Regressed to and icons font shows as expected.

I have checked this issue and able to reproduce this behavior.I added the code given in the description and deployed the app on simulators(Android and iOS) I observed that FontFamily shows correctly on Android but not in iOS. I checked this issue by using Xamarin.Forms
