Fonts on the Story HD with Wifi

Anyone know which fonts are "natively" supported by the Story HD? I'd figure it would be Arial and TNR, but I wanted to make sure since the Unicode chart shows some really inconsistent character support across both. For example, the Sans font has most of the Dingbats, while the Serif one doesn't.

The firmware contains these font files, I'm not sure which characters they cover, or which font is used for what precisely.

Code:
AdobeHeitiStd-Regular.otf
AdobeMingStd-Light.otf
AdobeMyungjoStd-Medium.otf
CourierStd-Bold.otf
CourierStd-BoldOblique.otf
CourierStd-Oblique.otf
CourierStd.otf
MinionPro-Bold.otf
MinionPro-BoldIt.otf
MinionPro-It.otf
MinionPro-Regular.otf
MyriadPro-Bold.otf
MyriadPro-BoldIt.otf
MyriadPro-It.otf
MyriadPro-Regular.otf
RyoGothicPlusN-Medium.otf
SymbolStd.otf
iriverSD.ttf
iriverSMJ.ttf
The iriver*.ttf should be what the device is using for its menus, file browsers, etc. the other ones are what the epub viewer uses.

MyriadPro is what was responsible for those little page numbers on the side (which were removed in 1.29 US firmware) - I modified this font in my HideNumbers mod to get rid of them.

And there pretty much ends my knowledge about story hd fonts.

You can use custom fonts with my UserStyle mod (for EPUBs), if the CSS integrated into the EPUB is nice enough to allow such an outside style to apply. Of course you can also embed fonts into the EPUB itself, although it makes for large epub files.

So which one of those is the default sans font, and the default serif one for rendering epubs that don't have embedded fonts?

One thing to remember, what the defaults fonts on the HD can display may not be what the default fonts on a different reader can display.

When frostschutz's list is actually used then it should be Minion (serif) and Myriad (non-serif).

Sure, but at least it can give me some idea of what works and what doesn't. For example, the sans font on the HD supports the entire dingbat set, while the serif one doesn't?

By the way, some of your comments read like you've been following my posts. Anything I should know about?
