One question: why does adding Charis also add all those other fonts to the list (and apparently to the Kindle)? Are they encoded into Charis somehow? Is there any way to remove them from the list while keeping Charis? (I guess that's more than one question, lol.) Apologies if that's been answered in the thread, I haven't had a chance to go through and read it all yet.

>Edit: Just tried the Charis SIL Modified larger. *This* one is definitely the best.

Renders beautifully for me at second from the left Aa, whereas regular Charis was a tad too small at 2nd and too big at 3rd. Really nice weight to the font. I like Palatino, but it was a bit too light. The Charis larger is just perfect on the PW.
Those other fonts were already on your PW, just unavailable until you did the USE_ALT_FONTS thing...It is possible to hide them, but it is an involved process discussed earlier by duckietigger.
