Changing Mobi fonts on iRex DR1000S

Hi fellow eReaders,

I have browsed through this forum and can't seem to find an answer, so I'll ask the question straight up:

Can I install additional fonts on my DR1000S to use in the Mobi Reader? I have found reading Mobi books that I have a huge selection of font size choices, but am stuck with Arial as a font and can find no other choice. Is it possible to maybe place some TTF fonts in a /fonts folder (or a similarly simple install) such that they are recognised by the Mobi reader?

I am running firmware 1.6 (latest) and I have also installed the FBReader 0.10.2 (which I beleive can read Mobi - so maybe I should use that?).

I usually use my BeBook for eBook reading (much smaller/lighter for travel) and keep the DR1000 at the office for A4 PDFs, etc., so I haven't hit this issue before with Mobi. But the Mobi reader on the DR1000 is nicer than the BeBook (current) implementation, and the BeBook also has some issues with books that have images (e.g. historical books with photos, novels with maps like "The Hobbit").

Thanks in advance for any help.
