I did four experiments:

1. DejaVu Sans Condensed original is displayed correctly (wrong name);
2. DejaVu Sans Condensed renamed as above is displayed correctly (correct name);
3. DejaVu Sans Condensed weight increased as above is displayed in italics (ignores the regular);
4. DejaVu Sans Condensed weight increased and renamed as above is displayed in italics (ignores the regular).

My conclusion is that by increasing the weight the regular font is no longer recognized as regular and as such is ignored by Kindle. This is strange, as it happens only with DejaVu Sans Condensed, and not any other font from this family, and only if it is not alone (i.e. other styles are present).

This implies that other metadata may need to adjust in order for the regular font be accepted. Which one? As well, is there any other conclusion to infer? Consequently, another course of action?

Later edit: modifying the description field width to appear as Medium, and not Semi-condensed is not a solution. The regular font is still ignored.
