  • Nook doesn't offer the "Publisher Defaults" option at all unless the book contains at least one embedded font.
  • Nook overrides publisher-chosen fonts in SVG content (which is very, very bad behavior).

That second one is incorrect - the Publisher Defaults option should be there for all trade epubs (unless something got changed while I wasn't looking).
