According to B&N, the Nook has three fonts. I suppose I could embed the three special characters for all three fonts (if I knew what the fonts were), but would the ereader select the correct one for the font being used? Could I code for it? And what would happen if the user changes the font size? Would the images scale with it?
I don't know who said 3, but that's not right. It's 6 Fonts, and the font sets change slightly between our color and e-ink devices.

I'm pretty sure that there isn't a way to select images based upon font styling.
