I would like to embed a particular font (Old Standard from http://www.thessalonica.org.ru/en/oldstandard.html
) in a book.
In Sigil, Calibre, and the EPub reader add-on to Firefox, all looks fine. (Well, in Sigil and Calibre the italics don't display, but that is ok.) But in ADE, (and on my Sony Reader) the font does not show at all.
I have tried the .ttf and .otf versions of the fonts, and checked and double-checked my code in the stylesheet - see below.
The font looks fine in Word and other applications, and I can successfully embed other fonts into the ePub.
Any suggestions? Do some fonts have characteristics that make them unsuitable for embedding?
Any help much appreciated
font-family: "OldStandard", serif;
