}
in the CSS and put your font at FONT/FREESCPT.TTF of internal storage.
And actually it supports *any* unicode locale. (Fonts on MS is also possible.)

So no more font embedding. There's no 'Formatting' for ePub and it turns much faster than PDFs.
Thinking about it, you could just have all your books refer to //Data/FONT/default.ttf, can then you could easily change the font globally without any concern about replacing the builtin fonts.
