I spent several hours last night experimenting with this feature. I was unable to get it to work. I tried every combination I could of the following:
  • Truetype font, Mac-style or PC-style...
  • In files named xxx.ttf, or XXX.TTF...
  • In a FONT sub-directory or directly in the Data directory...
  • Named in the CSS by their Mac name, their PC name or their "Unique name"...

I also attempted using Opentype fonts, both truetype and PS style. I was not able to construct a working example, no matter the combination.

At this point, I'd really appreciate it if someone who's gotten this to work on their 700 (or 505!) would be willing to send me both a zip of the actual font file they used AND the css they used to invoke it.
