When using SSRS I 1) Create a report using BIDS, 2) Deploy to the report server, 3) Develope ASP.Net app w/ReportViewer control, 4) Preview looks great but when I run in Debug mode the body of the report has an incorrect font, 5) Export to PDF file is fine.

No code involved; just a SSRS BIDS Report and an ASP.Net Report Viewed Control.

The joys of SSRS -- I've had issues like this, too.  I'm pretty sure if you try different browsers some show the correct font, some don't (IE?).  I think I got around this issue by using CSS and setting the font and styles that way.  For some reason the ReportViewer just doesn't want to play nicely with what you've constructed in BIDS.  See if some basic CSS helps.  

FYI - Using Firefox with the Firebug extension can help a lot in identifying what CSS classes to use for specific manipulation of styles.

Good luck.

<style type="text/css">
 body { font-family: Verdana; }
</style>
