Embedding fonts

Hi
I'm trying to get some Greek texts to display to be read on a Sony eReader 505.

I've tried to follow the instructions to embed fonts, but I either get no Greek characters or only those that do not require extended characters.

Any suggestions welcome.

James

what font are you embedding? font embedding in LRF is a bit of a hit and miss affair as the SONY LRF renderer only accepts a small subset of all fonts. I would suggest you try with many different fonts on your system untill you find one that works.

There are limited options with the Greek texts I am trying to read.
I could run through some more. I tried o vary the coding (UTFetc) as you suggested but any changes made things worse.
