How to add fonts to AZW3

I have an AZW3 I want to add fonts to. I Tweaked it and added in the fonts. I believe I did it correctly. The I had Calibre rebuild the AZW3. I loaded the AZW3 onto a Kindle Touch and then selected publisher font. Needless to say, all I got was the default font and not the embedded fonts.

So, what is it I have to do or is this something that needs to be built into Calibre to allow us to do?

Do a conversion. Yes I know you are mortally afraid of doing conversions, but that is the only supported way. With Tweaking, you *really* have to know what you are doing.

I'm not afraid of doing conversions. I just don't like doing unnecessary conversions. I didn't mind doing a conversion from ePub > AZW3 to get the fonts to work. I've done it before. It's the only way to fix the line height bug on any Kindle prior to the Touch.

What I did do was use Kindlegen/KindleUnpack to make a new AZW3 that should be the same as the original AZW3 except it now has embedded fonts.
