Which of these types refer to the actual book, and which refer to the kindle menus?
Hmmm... I'll answer this here, but will also copy/paste this into the the first post, because it's probably helpful:
  • The Serif (S) font is what is used by default for reading books. This is also the font which is used for displaying the book titles and author names on the Home Screen.
  • The Sans Serif (SS) font is used for displaying the Menu Items. You can also select this font to read books.
  • The Condensed (C) font is only available for reading books, after selecting the appropriate entry ("condensed") in the display configuration dialog.
  • The Monospace (M) font is only shown in rare circumstances, usually when system output is displayed to the user. This includes the "System" pane of FontHack itself, but also some of the hidden shortcuts of the Kindle, or possibly a few specially formatted passages of a book that you're reading.

Sure it is! I've had all 4 fonts replaced as well... but to say the truth, by now, I personally only replace the "condensed" font (with DejaVu Serif Condensed). It's a good font to read, and all the other fonts just keep being reset because I'm constantly tampering around with my device :-)
