Well, I decided to upload a pic of Berling Antiqua. I don't know how you guys are getting such crisp images with a scanner. The screen is a bit out of focus on mine as it is further away from the plate.

I get the same fuzzy screen scan on my home scanner. I use the big photocopier (can do A3 paper) at work to scan; it must have better optics.

One thing I can get from using ePub is that I can get true italics, true bold, true bold/italics, true smallcaps. From LRF, everything but the normal font is simulated. Oh and age turns with embedded fonts in ePub as a lot faster then with LRF.

The only way to find out is to try it.

This is only for the Sony Readers. I tried on my EZ Reader (Hanlin V3) and it does not accept fonts in /Data or /home. I think others have tried on the Cybook Opus without success.

Mm, I'm browsing through the sources of the BeBook firmware, there's a tool called 'Fb2Linux', with a source file called 'fb2v.cpp'. In this source file something like

Code:
fontDir << "/fonts"
and

Code:
// init bitmap font manager
    InitFontManager( fontDir );
occurs; could it be that the system font directory is simply called '/font'?

I'm going to try it out, but I'm afraid it has to wait until tonight

(rats! To quick! The entire code block reads:

Code:
printf("home dir: %s\n", exedir);

    lString8 fontDir(exedir);
    fontDir << "/fonts";
meaning '/fonts' is a subdirectory below a certain home directory. Which can be anything. Bummer. )

I have a problem of reading epub with ADE on Windows XP. I created an EPUB file with embedded font. It works. Then I want to remove the embedded font to save storage space, so, by imitating some post in this thread, I tried with the lines in "stylesheet.css":
Code:
src : url(res:///c:/WINDOWS/FONTS/MSJH.ttf) format("truetype");
Code:
src : url(file:///c:/WINDOWS/FONTS/MSJH.ttf) format("truetype");
The result is bad.

What am I missing?

You have to use this resource reference inside of a font-face instruction, as in my :

Code:
@font-face {font-family: "Caecilia", serif;font-weight: normal;font-style: normal;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/CaeciliaLTStd-Roman.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "Caecilia", serif;font-weight: bold;    font-style: normal;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/CaeciliaLTStd-Bold.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "Caecilia", serif;font-weight: bold;    font-style: italic;   src: url(res:///Data/fonts/CaeciliaLTStd-BoldItalic.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "Caecilia", serif;font-weight: normal;font-style: italic;   src: url(res:///Data/fonts/CaeciliaLTStd-Italic.otf);}

@font-face {font-family: "FontinSans", sans-serif;font-weight: normal;font-style: normal;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/Fontin_Sans_R_45b.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "FontinSans", sans-serif;font-weight: bold;font-style: normal;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/Fontin_Sans_B_45b.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "FontinSans", sans-serif;font-weight: bold;font-style: italic;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/Fontin_Sans_BI_45b.otf);}
@font-face {font-family: "FontinSans", sans-serif;font-weight: normal;font-style: italic;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/Fontin_Sans_I_45b.otf);}
This code forces the use of the Caecilia font for all serif font declarations in the following and inherited CSS, and the use of FontinSans in lieu of all other sans-serif fonts.

Hope this helps,
Dave.

Thanx for your reply.
In fact, I have set @font-face{} in "stylesheet.css". I can create epub ebook with embedded font without any problem. In my previous post, I just cited the "src: url..." part because I thought it's the only relevant facor.

Ok, my mistake.
You'll have to check that the file path is correct, including any capitalization problem specific to Windows (which is known for not showing the file names with their proper capitalization).
Also, I didn't know about the format("truetype") part ; is it possible that this would cause a problem ? In fact I never needed it, ADE is fully capable of distinguishing between TT and OTF font types by itself...
This would require some trial and error ; I may be able to help if you want, feel free to send me a private message so we can arrange for a transfer of your example file.

Cheers,
Dave.
