If the publisher has decided to make the books look better (see the Stig Larsson ePub for example) then the users of Kobo get shafted.

i read three of the Stig Larsson ePubs and thought the books were great didnt give a second thought to what the font was and certainly didnt feel shafted. To be honest until I started reading your posts it didnt even occure to me that there was an issue with imbeded fonts?
