Can I change the contrast on fonts?

I like to use the Georgia font. The only problem is that it's not dark enough. On the Sony readers, there's an option to change the contrast and brightness. Can I do that on a PW?

only for PDF.

but you can use the "use alt fonts" hack (fond in this forum) to get other fonts, even without jailbreaking.

I thought alt fonts is disabled on the PW2, and you have to embed fonts into the book file to include custom fonts.
