Questions about KF8/AZW3/Mobi8 from/to conversion

Hi,
  1. I've tried to convert from AZW3 to ePub a sample downloaded from Amazon (search on amazon com kindle store "relativitÓ esposizione divulgativa"). The sample is actually very small. It cointains some font (DejaVuSerif). When these files are estracted, they are very small too, actually much smaller than the original TTF files. And it looks like they don't work in the generates ePub. Any clue?
  2. Does the AZW3 exporter embed fonts within the generated file?
  3. It' very sad that AZW3 does not have hyphenation support jet. By the way it does support the soft hyphen (& shy; ) HTML entity (and the <wbr/> tag, too).
    I've manually patched the text around a shaped div and it works well (see the small attached sample).
    May be this is a stupid idea but... Would it be possible to create a filter to automatically add a & shy; in the right hyphen positions to the generated AZW3? The filter should parse the XHTML file, apply an hyphenation algorithm according to the language of the book just adding & shy; and the kindle would then be able to render it.
