These are part of my long-term objectives for the program. The 'Full CSS' styling is quite a complicated thing to achieve, and that is why I have not done it yet

Also, I note that there is not a lot of demand for it - by which I mean that there are various other popular epub reading programs for Windows Phone that produce much worse formatting than Freda (basically they just strip out all markup and format the book as plain text). And these other programs remain popular in spite of the fact that they don't do a good job of epub formatting.

As for font embedding, this is actually really hard to achieve in Windows Phone 7. I think the situation is different in Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8, so the Freda versions for those platforms will probably support embedded fonts at some point in the future.
