iBooks now supports embedded fonts

But today I noticed something new: iBooks now supports embedded fonts even in regular, reflowable, non-fixed layout EPUBs.

That's not all. I noticed while I was testing this feature that Apple no longer restricts embedded fonts to non-special tags, as I describe on page 140 of my EPUB book. This is a really big deal, and means you can forget the ugly hacks previously required to get them to appear.
Liz Castro has simple instructions on her site to make ePubs work with embeddable fonts-and as a bonus, these ePubs also will work on the Nook!

I really prefer to pick fonts myself. What I find more readable apparently does not match what other people sometimes choose.

Yes, it is odd that iBooks doesn't allow access to all the fonts already on the iPad..there are like 33 of them available!
