In the .css files, you need the @font-face statement, and in the src property the url must be relative to where the .css sits. Like this:

Code:
@font-face {
  font-family: "Dearest";
  src: url("../fonts/Dearest.ttf") format("truetype");
}
The .css is in OEBPS/css, and the .ttf in OEBPS/fonts.

As examples, of my ePUBs, "The Prince and the Pauper", "Savage Stories of Conan", "Don Quijote" and "Novelas Ejemplares" use embedded fonts.
Hmm. I think is going to finally push me into using a separate css file.

Will that @font-face declaration work if it's between the style tags in the header of an html file? If so, then becuase calibre will extract the data this means I can continue to use MobiCreator.
