Question ePub custom Fonts on all Sonys

In some earlier post in one of the many fora here on MobileRead, somebody posted instructions on how to use a custom non-embedded(!) font with ePub files on the 500 and 505. Has anyone done this successfully on the 700?

The posted directions were:
Quote:
Just put the following script:
@font-face {
font-family: "Freestyle Script";
src:url(res:///Data/FONT/FREESCPT.TTF);
}
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.)
I'm trying to do this on my 700, but I can't find a Data directory in which to place my font. Suggestions, anyone?

EDIT : scroll down to post 9 of this thread for all the css code you will need, and in post 18 i've added some screen caps and a step-by-step guide for people who are less experienced with using css.
