If the other 3 font files don't exist the only thing you can do is map all 4 (reg, italic, bold, boldital) to the single sylfaen.ttf font file you do have, like this:
Code:
@font-face { font-family: serif; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/sylfaen.ttf);}
but of course all text will then display in sylfaen regular, i.e. no bold and/or italic.

If you want bold and italic to display correctly you will need to pick a different font-family with all 4 files which contain all characters for your language of choice. What is it, by the way?

Another option is to use a different font for the italic, bold, and bold-italic, such as one of the resident fonts already on the T1. The results may look a little weird, but at least you'll end up with bold, italic, etc.

For example, to use the Amasis files found on the T1, use the following code (note the different file-path!)

Code:
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/sylfaen.ttf);} 
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/AmasisMTW1G-Italic.otf);} 
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/AmasisMTW1G-Bold.otf);}  
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/AmasisMTW1G-BoldItalic.otf);}
If you use the above, normal words will appear in Sylfaen, and italic, bold, and bold-italic will use Amasis.

If you want to use another font that you add to the same font folder that you put sylfaen, you would use this code:

Code:
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/sylfaen.ttf);} 
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: normal; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/FONTNAME.ttf);} 
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: normal; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/FONTNAME.ttf);} 
@font-face { font-family: serif; font-weight: bold; font-style: italic; src: url(res:///ebook/fonts/../../mnt/sdcard/fonts/FONTNAME.ttf);}
Or, of course, you can choose a different font-family altogether that includes all four fonts styles.

I'm not aware if other fonts will display Georgian.

It's Georgian.

The 6 special built-in fonts (Amasis, PalatinoNova etc) seem to support quite a lot of languages. Did any of these 6 fonts support Georgian, when chosen via Menu - Font - Select Font Type?

Edit: The free Liberation fonts support some Eastern European languages. This may be worth a try.
