It looks like you have defined a font in your CSS but didn't actually set body text to *use* that font :)

Try adding this to the override CSS box:

body {
font-family: "arial", sans-serif;
}

Oops, I forgot you are using LRF and not epub.

Can you upload a small piece of the text you are having trouble with?

I have had trouble in the past with Calibre not using the embedded text for the main body font, but only for monospace, sanserif or italic serif (not sure about bolded serif). Have you tried different type variations?

As far as I know Arial isn't unicode, you need 'Arial Unicode' as font

just print to pdf with embeded font is easier.

If you were to use ePub, you would not have the slowdown for page turns that you get with LRF and embedded fonts.
