I can successfully change to any of the built in fonts, which makes me think that there are not embedded fonts in the ePub files (I have tried a number of them). I have not edited any of the font names from what was provided in the sticky's files. I am really confused! Any help would be hugely appreciated!

EDIT - Never mind, fixed itself after a restart!

Thanks,
Bethany
Yeah, I've found that you have to restart every time you add new fonts.

I've modified (slightly weighter) versions of these fonts, they all look great at smaller sizes maybe with the exception of Chaparral, it's got a pretty small x-height.

Chaparral Pro
ITC Stone Informal Std
Minion Pro
Sabon LT Std
FF Clifford Nine
FF Tisa Pro

FF Tisa is my favorite at the moment, it's similar to PMN Caecilia but slightly narrower and with letters a bit more spaced. Very pleasant to read with.



All fonts are properly renamed, just drop it in your fonts folder.

edit: I've removed the fonts for now.
