I have mostly done ebooks by taking the original Word document, saving it as HTML in Word, then converting that with Calibre to give me an epub. Then I rweak the epub with Sigil.

When you do that, Calibre puts a lot of code into the epub. At the very beginning (in the first HTML file inside the epub), it puts a ton of font-face items, many which I delete, but I leave ones I want to use. They look like this:

@font-face {
font-family: Helvetica
}

@font-face {
font-family: Courier New
}

Then in the css file, it puts entries like this:
.MsoBodyText {
border-bottom: 0;
border-top: 0;
display: block;
font-family: "Courier New";
font-size: 1em;
line-height: 1.1;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 0;
margin-right: -5.75pt;
margin-top: 0;
padding-bottom: 0;
padding-top: 0;
text-align: center
}

If you then use that css definition in the html for a particular page, it will take effect, as long as you do not override it with the font setting on the Nook - i.e. use Publisher Default.

This has worked for me.
