Both prc and txt are handled by MobiPocket. And, as tribble has said, there is no sane way (for now).

If you have the reflash option, you may be able to interchange the VeraSe (serif) and the normal font (Vera) in the following directory (also the VeraBd and VeraSeBd), but I won't dare to do it (it may have a lot of undesirable effects or even make the iliad not able to boot):
[end of crazy method]
Summing it up, the best option is to wait until they make the font user-selectable.
