I turned the device off and booted it up with the SD card in, still no joy. Maybe because this is a guide for the 505 model and I have a 950? I dunno why I thought this was device agnostic, but maybe it isn't.

Any help that anyone can offer would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
The directions are for changing the default fonts in BBeB (LRF). They don't have anything to do with the default ePub fonts. So even if the directions worked, they would not be all that useful. And the directions given won't actually work on a 950.

Do you know how to strip DRM from ePub? If you do, it's very easy to use CSS code in the ePub to embed fonts stored on the 950 itself. I can give you a hand with that.
