Yes, I know that Calibre does ePub, but it doesn't embed fonts to ePub.

Yes, I know that Calibre does LRF and does embed fonts to it, but it doesn't work properly for few czech/slovak letters. It works for most letters, but not for all. In czech language it is quite fine, but slovak language uses those letter very frequently.

Yes, I know that InDesign CS4 creates nice ePub files with embedded fonts, but it is like shooting of stupid small mouse with some powerful gun.

Yes, I know that I can modify PRS-505 with Unicode fonts and so on, but I don't want hack it at all. I want to use something officially "allowed".

Requirements:
1. Proper fonts embedding
2. Nice ePub output
3. Easy to use
4. Low price (free of charge it the best)
5. Mac or Win (I have both)

Thank you very much for your ideas.

Try Escape and Ecub from the stickeys at the top of the epub forum. They are simple and good for basic text based books. I have begun to use them myself.
