ePub in Russian?

Hi Kovid.

I have Russian fonts on my 505 and am able to get Russian feeds in lrf format and read them on the reader. But when I change the output to ePub, reader is not displaying the text (it does work fine on desktop viewer).

Do I need to change settings somewhere?

Thanks, David

You need to get the epub reader on your 505 to use your modified fonts. One way to do that is embed the instructions in the created epub file,

using the option --override-css

Code:
@font-family {"f1",url(/path/to/font/file/on/reader}}
body { font-family: f1 }

Thanks for quick reply Kovid.

This seems to be out of my league. I'll use lrf (have to remember to transfer through Sony software).

This looks interresting. I have simmilar problem with epub file and serbian language. The original fonts shipped with prs 500 support serbian latin characters and that works fine with lrf format, however when I create epub book all non-latin characters are shown as question mark even though the content is in utf-8.

Any idea on how to resolve this issue?
