It's both. It's a bug that was forgotten about. Publishers use the Body style to turn on the embedded font in most cases. So are they wrong? Not in this case.

Some month ago there was a post on the subject from kobo guy.
I assume it would collide with change of font to sans. I also recall
post, where someone removed that vanilla file and succeeded to
get embedded. I might be wrong.

Well, now there are two of us complaining. So your statement is no longer applicable, if it was ever relevant.

It's very simple really. The Kobo overwrites the body font-family with either 'serif' or 'sans-serif', which is how they allow the user to choose a font face. For all intents and purposes, the .css code is appended.

If you want and e-book on the kobo to display an embedded font (defined in the .body), then you must use css codes that aliases those fonts. I've had to do this to fix books that use unusual characters that were not included in the original fonts (and would therefore display as ?)

Ex:

@font-face {
font-style: italic;
font-family: 'Liberation', serif, sans-serif;
font-weight: normal;
src: url(../Fonts/LiberationSerif-Italic.ttf);
}
@font-face {
font-style: normal;
font-family: 'Liberation', serif, sans-serif;
font-weight: normal;
src: url(../Fonts/LiberationSerif-Regular.ttf);
}
@font-face {
font-style: italic;
font-family: 'Liberation', serif, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
src: url(../Fonts/LiberationSerif-BoldItalic.ttf);
}
@font-face {
font-style: normal;
font-family: 'Liberation', serif, sans-serif;
font-weight: bold;
src: url(../Fonts/LiberationSerif-Bold.ttf);
}

I've not really tested this much yet, but I believe the Kobo touch, (at least, up to 1.9.4 firmware) allows embedded fonts to work without the hack. The trade-off, however, is that you can not set user font prefernences in those books.

I've tried it with a cut down version of font modes (bold, normal, serif/sans etc) and it failed. If this method works, perhaps you must include ALL the options as above. A lazy inclusion of only some options will only display question marks.
