Cyrillic?

Can anyone verify if a cyrillic font does in fact work on these? i saw one posting from a while back that said it should...
thanks!

It'll work as long as you can embed a font: for example PDF.

On the Cybook v3, you can also add fonts, adding a cyrillic font might also work in this case.

They are supposed to work. If you have a cyrillc font and cyrillic text, just post it here, and ill test it.

If you just copy a Cyrillic TrueType or OpenType font to the Gen3 it should work fine.

Well, I wasn't able to make it display Polish letters for Polish text. I put a TTF font on Cybook, I confirmed that it has Polish letters in, but I found no way to make Cybook change its codepage.

Polish letters aren't available at all in ISO-8859-1 codepage, they need ISO-8859-2 codepage to work. So despite the font having Polish letters, Cybook doesn't use them.

Since it doesn't recognize UTF-8 encoding either, there's no way I could change the text to make it display Polish letters - I tried a sample file with all characters from 32 to 255 in it, and not one of them was displayed a Polish letter.

I could try to engineer the TTF font, so it would have Polish letters in ISO-8859-1 codepage (Latin1), but I'd have to do it on every for I'd want to use, seems to me a very bad way to have it working.

Does anybody know of a way to change codepage in Cybook? Did I miss something?

Try making a Mobi book in UTF-8 (use "-unicode" switch for mobigen or choose UTF-8 in Mobipocket Creator).

Yes, if I use Mobi book format it works.

Still, if I wanted to do it that way, I wouldn't wait for the e-book reader who handles txt format. I'll just have to see how well it'll handle it. I hope the firmware update will bring many fixes.

Thank you for this solution.
