I was wondering if anyone has tried a bolder base font like caecilia 75 and whether that looks better in the smaller view? Or alternatively, has anyone replaced the dutch font with a sans-serif font for easier reading at the smaller sizes?
I've not replaced the stock LRF fonts, but I have used Fontin very well with ePub and it looks very nice on screen at a small size. Give it a go. You'll be pleased with it. The best way to find out if you will be pleased is to download just the Fontin regular (no bold, no italic, etc) and embed it in a book via Calibre or Book Designer and see how it looks. I know page turns will be slower, but you are doing this for the look and not the feel until you replace Dutch Roman with Fontin.
