Does anyone know how Java (i.e. the MobiPocket Reader) handles fonts?
I would really like a bolder font for the Reader. The obvious choice is Arial Black, but that is an OpenType font. I have found URWGothicL-Demi.ttf works well in FBReader. I am currently installing it on the CF card, and I have not been able to get MobiPocket Reader to recognize this font. The screenshots are from Bitstream Vera Sans and URWGothicLDem in FBReader. Note that in FBReader, I could just select bold as the default - so there is less need for a heavy base font. I am using these screenshots as proxies for MobiPocket Reader, although I have not tried to replicate its margins and line spacing.
