@hfpop: The Aa menu groups fonts by *families*, and, on FW 5.x, will synthesize (ie. fake) missing styles, which obviously works best if the provided style is the Regular style for said family.

Now, for DejaVu, the Condensed sets actually have *two* families set, with the pirmary being the exact same as the parent family (ie. DejaVu Sans Condensed => DejaVu Sans).

My guess is the Kindle only cares about the primary family names, so for all intents and purpose, the default DejaVu Sans Condensed is DejaVu Sans with style Condensed, which the Kindle probably doesn't care about (Caecilia Condensed is handled in a very funny & weird way, nearly totally inside FreeType itself, so they don't really care about honoring the Condensed style).

Cf. the output from fc-list (default format is ${file}: ${familes}:${styles})

Code:
