Hey Edge777- sorry for bothering you even more. I told you earlier that in Arial the Chinese characters didn't work. I've updated my kindle now to 2.3. PDFs with Chinese work now - but reading a PDF is just not as nice, ofr exaple the search takes forever in a long book (like a chinese Bible). Would you try again with another font? (This time for firmware 2.3) I uploaded the font at http://www.4shared.com/file/15981598...158c/msjh.html and
http://www.4shared.com/file/15981605...8c/msjhbd.html (the second one is the bold version). thanks!

Or has anybody else found a font that shows Chinese and special characters in European languages on the Kindle?

No bother, but the next two days (including tonight) are really full with work stuff (I'm a Canadian working in Mexico City). But, on Friday, maybe Thursday night, I should have some time to do up the extra font files (who knows, maybe even late tonight if I can't sleep, lol).

Since Droid Sans only has Regular and Bold, I've redone the files using Sans for those, and then Serif for the Italics (so that Italics still display).
Hello

I Just installed this hack on my Kindle 2 international version 2.3 and it works great. I would like the peace of mind of knowing that I can uninstall it in the future though and I don't see an uninstaller included.

The uninstaller I found here. http://blogkindle.com/unicode-fonts-hack/ doesn't seem to work but I figure that's because it's an uninstaller for kindle version 2.2.

Is there any way to uninstall the font hack in the link I just quoted?

Thanks.

Ok, no worries. I found the uninstall files here http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...9&postcount=41 with the Georgia fonts for 2.3. Sorry about that.

thx for ur brilliant job,edge777,it works well on my K2i.
Georgia is a perfrct font for English papers,it displays clean and classic.
I am wondering if there is a solution for Chinese owners,except Droid font.

I don't have that Helvetica2 - if you'd like to send it over, I can make the BIN update.

Edge, I'm not sure what files you're looking for, but Helvetica/Helvetica2/Georgia and many others are all available here:
https://sites.google.com/a/etccreati...-install-files

Is there any possibility you can update the Georgia2 from that page to work on a K2 US with 2.3 firmware? I'm sorry if that's not what you were offering, if so, just ignore this post! =)

Ya, I've been to that page, and love the font creations. I have been in contact with the author, but he said he's pretty busy right now to create updates. Unfortunately, I'm still pretty new at this (I started because I wanted the Georgia font on my Kindle International, and no one else had created a BIN file, so I learned how to do it). I don't know how to extract the font files from these BINs - if someone knows how, or can point me in the right direction, I'd be happy to help!
