Is it possible to UN embed fonts?

I have created an epub file using Calibre and cleaned up the file with Sigil. I'm now in the validation process using the Threepress validator and have come up with this message: "Your document was created with Adobe InDesign and uses embedded fonts. InDesign does not produce valid ePub output when fonts are embedded." Is there code I can delete at this point or do I need to start over?!

Can you post the CSS so we can see what the error message actually means?

I don't know much about code which is why I'm using Sigil. My css file is 500 lines long. Most of it seems to be about paragraph styling, this is the first bit that seems to be about the whole doc.
@namespace h "http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml";
.calibre {
display: block;
font-size: 1em;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 5pt;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-top: 0;
page-break-before: always;
text-align: justify
}

I see on the Threepress site I should have something like,
"@font-face {
font-family : MyFont;
font-weight : normal;
font-style: normal;
src : url(MyFont.otf);

but I don't.

I'm very lost.

You say you created it in Calibre. Was Indesign a part of the process at some point? When exporting from InDesign uncheck 'Include Embeddable Fonts'.

As Paul explains in this post Adobe's method of embedding fonts won't pass validation...

Not sure how you'd undo it after generating the epub, but I'm sure it's possible. Need to poke around the file though to figure it out.

ZIP the CSS and attach it. Then we can see exactly what's there.

Rename the .epub to .zip and then you can just unzip the CSS file.

Have you got hidden file extensions turned on in Windows?

There's a "Fonts" folder in the Book Browser. Expand it and then delete the embedded fonts. Then find the @font-face CSS code that included those fonts and delete that too.

No need to any unzipping at all.

tip: calibre embeds the @font-face css code in every xhtml file instead of the css file

A global search&replace should take care of that.

As Valloric said, you don't have to unzip it at all. But for your information, if you ever want to unzip an ePub on the Mac: open a terminal window and type: unzip title.epub
