I might give a look at one of the Georgia eInk fonts and see if I can fix it easily enough. If not, I won't bother. It's not worth it if it's not a simple task.

You are very welcome. Glad you like it. I think it looks quite nice as well. It's the font I use most of the time.

I think it be easier just to take the original Georgia and add weight to it. It's a Windows font so it's easily found.

Yes, I have it in Windows. But I am curious to see why the eInk modified versions can't keep a straight line.

Hi again! Can't get this to work. Here's my order of operations: also wanting the ability to edit margins, I jailbroke and did the kindlet jailbrea, too, and then installed the JBPatch. I did the use_alt_fonts hack after the fact, but no go. Restarted the Kindle, restarted the framework, etc.

Only thing I can think of is that Windows 7 here won't let me dissociate the .txt extension from the USE_ALT_FONTS file, no matter what I do. It keeps the association so the file isn't truly "blank," I suppose.

If this is, as I suspect, the reason, could someone kindly post or link me to a fully blank, unassociated USE_ALT_FONTS file, or make one?

I'd be forever indebted!

Glad you like it. On my 650 is does not bad in low light.
Not sure how long the Kindle Touch had custom fonts working like the PW does, but Charis SIL looks good on the Touch as well.

There is also a smallcaps family included in the archive which is good for use with KF8.
Thank you for this! I just added it and it's really nice!

I've used Palatino as my main document text font for ages. It seemed natural to use it here.

That's a really nice font. I don't have a PW yet, but this font looks really good in FBReader on my Nook Color. I was using Georgia but I think this will be my font of choice for quite some time. I'll most likely use it for the PW as well.

Thanks!

Edit: Added screenshot from KK using JSWolf's CharisSIL font- not compact.

I've since changed my favorite font from Palatino, to PT Serif. On a side note, when reading on my Kindle 3, my favorite is Fanwood Text.
