Embedded font bug or CSS bug in ADE

1. Get a copy of Notepad++ and an ePub with Charis SIL embedded.
2. Extract the CSS and load the CSS into Notepad++.
3. Change the encoding of the CSS to Encode in UTF-8.
4. Put the CSS back into the ePub and view the ePub in ADE.

Now, you'll see that the base font is bold when it's not supposed to be.

Take the same CSS and change the encoding to Encode in UTF-8 without BOM

The base font will be fine. The bold is gone and the text is normal once again.

Does anyone know why this happens and that the cause is? It also happens on my 650 as well as ADE for Windows.

For those with a different reader that uses ADE, I'd be interested in seeing if that bug exists.
