embedded fonts in ibooks?

I have no idea if I am in the right forum to ask this question ... If I am wrong, please move

Usually I use a sony e-reader, but now I found out my iPod touch can also display epub books - so I have been testing some of mine ...

one of those epubs has an embedded font, which shows fine on the sony, but is absent on the iPod touch ...

My question: do embedded fonts work on the iPod touch in ibooks? If not, no big deal - if yes, what do I have to do to make this work?


Greetings,

Uluhara

I have never tried embedding fonts for use with iBooks. However, there are several good ePub readers besides iBooks that are available for iOS (iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad). I think that at least one of them will work with embedded fonts.

Embedded fonts now work in iBooks. Liz Castro has a nice guide here:

The video on your site shows "this format is not supported" and "this video cannot be played" on a 3GS iPhone.
