Unreadable text!

First and foremost Thank you for an excellent software.

I have added some new newspaper feeds; the feeds do download correctly and the text is readable on my computer. Unfortunately when I transfer the files to my Sony 900 reader, the text becomes unreadable. The text is in arabic; I'm hinting that it is perhaps because my reader doesn't support that font.

I'm not sure how I could solve this issue. I hope the solution doesn't require me to insert a font file with the RSS feed file everytime a new RSS feed is fetched.

Thanks in advance!

That's the problem.

There is a way to add fonts to the Sony line of ebook readers. I don't know the exact steps or what it requires as I don't have a Sony. I'll let someone with the device answer this part.

My understanding is yes. If you want to attach an Arabic language file (or a few pages of Arabic text) I can convert it and give it a try on my Kindle to confirm for you.

Yes, it is readable on the ipad. I didn't know how slow the ipad was when opening a book and at sometimes the software quits to the main menu.

Still does anyone know how to read the above RSS on my Sony 900?

You might want to ask in the Sony forum.
