Other languages?

This is totally a shot in the dark, but is there a way to install a font onto the reader to support another language? I really would like to get a Reader for my mom, but she likes to read in Gujarati [an Indian language]. Is there any way I could hack/change the settings on the Reader?

You can use embedded fonts for some formats (PDF/LRF ?) which should solve your problem.

And if embedded fonts won't do what you're looking for, have a look at this thread.

Just be sure to read the whole thread before you try any of it, that'll save you some trouble.
