For example, we know fonts in the internal device memory (/system/fonts/AmasisMTW1G.otf) can be referenced in css directly (using url of res://ebooks/fonts/AmasisMTW1G.otf) -- this does not require you to actually copy the files to the the [READER Drive:]\reader\fonts (/mnt/sdcard/reader/fonts).
I thought something similar might exist for referencing the internal device memory css files, and might be useful for example if you want to set the 'default' to use the internal amasis.css for example. Maybe this does not even exist in the stock reader...
Someone will correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think there are any internal device memory css files. I think the stock reader app creates (badly) the necessary @font-faces based on your selection in Menu - Fonts - Select Font Type.
If all you want is the stock reader app functionality, but with the italic/bold fonts bug fixed then I believe the simplest way would be to install Morkl's modified reader app but don't create the reader.xml
config file at all. You wouldn't need to create the 7 css files either.
