Linux Libertine font woes

I use Morkl's hacked reader app, with custom fonts and css style.

I've been experimenting with different fonts, and come across this vexing problem: Linux Libertine font displays regular normal-weight text as bold. I've tried otf, ttf, saving css as utf-8, ansi, ... anything that I could think of, to no avail. The font files are fine when I check them on PC. And all the other fonts that I've tried so far displays the same normal-weight text in the correct normal-weight font.

Below are my css codes... If there's anyone who's successfully using the Linux Libertine font on T1, please share your thoughts.

Code:
@font-face{ font-family: serif; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinLibertine_R.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: serif; font-style:italic; font-weight:normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinLibertine_RI.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: serif; font-style:normal; font-weight:bold; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinLibertine_RB.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: serif; font-style:italic; font-weight:bold; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinLibertine_RBI.otf);}

@font-face{ font-family: sans-serif; font-style:normal; font-weight:normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinBiolinum_R.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: sans-serif; font-style:italic; font-weight:normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinBiolinum_RI.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: sans-serif; font-style:normal; font-weight:bold; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinBiolinum_RB.otf);}
@font-face{ font-family: sans-serif; font-style:italic; font-weight:bold; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts/LinBiolinum_RB.otf);}
