Kobo Mini can read Vietnamese book now

Very simple now: Choose internal font in Font setting: Kobo Nickel
However it misses 1 character: ỹ -not too bad but a nuisance.
I think an external font set is better: Charis SIL (free download, Google it). In the past people used another external font set: Gentium Book Basic, but found it was hard to read (too thin strokes)
Install the external fonts as usual:
1.Download the fonts (here: Charis SIL) and store somewhere in your hard drive of your PC.
2.Connect your Kobo Mini with PC.
3.In Windows Explorer, find Kobo device, make a folder at root named fonts (with small f not a capital F, and with s at the end of the word, don`t know why otherwise it won`t work )
4.Copy external fonts to folder fonts of Kobo Mini.
5.Eject and disconnect Kobo Mini from PC.
6.Set font in Kobo Mini with Charis SIL.
