FontStyle is the value type for Silverlight properties or attributes that specify a font style value, but you must use static properties of FontStyles to provide a FontStyle value. In XAML, you specify the name of a FontStyles property as the attribute value. This functionality is enabled by native XAML parsing behavior that processes the string value.
WPF supports a FontStyles value of Oblique. Silverlight 5 does not support an Oblique value.
