Why? Most other versions of the MobiPocket Reader allow one to use any TrueType font; I'm sure that it would be a relatively minor change for Amazon to add this functionality to the Kindle. The basic "philosophy" of MobiPocket has always been to permit the user to determine the "appearance" of the book - the font it's displayed in, justification, margin widths, etc - rather than to have it "hardwired".

IMHO lack of TT font support is currently one of the most significant restrictions of the Kindle compared to other devices with MobiPocket support.
