I found that I needed to do this, so I added it to Adam's scripts. See the enclosed zip file.

I enclose screenshots from the Sans Serif and the Serif font at two sizes. As usual, if the image seems ragged is has been rescaled by your browser - click on it again to get the full size version.

The Sans Serif fonts appears to be DejaVu Sans, and the Serif font is Bitstream Vera Serif. There is also a Bitstream Vera Sans font, but (based on FBReader) it seems similar, or identical, to DejaVu. One difference is that Vera has a genuine bold face, but I don't think MobiPocket is recognizing anything except "sans" and "serif" for the font.

FBReader can also use the type1 fonts that are installed on the iLiad, but I can't get MobiPocket Reader to recognize these. The font I usually use for FBReader is Nimbus Sans L, but it is a type1 font.
