Post Chinese font ?

Hi There,

Is there a way to read this txt (attached to this post) on the cybook gen3 ?

It's in Chinese and I tried to read it on a Cybook without any success

If someone can try it and tell me if it's an encoding problem or a particular font to use I will be very grateful

You can simply try to copy ttf-fonts into the "Fonts"-folder of your Cybook (if it does not exist simply create one in the root directory).
You can then change the fonts using the menu in the book.

I googled and found some free fonts here, but I don't speak chinese so I don't know if they are ok for your needs

Thanks for the reply.
I already tried these fonts, not all but most of them.
I also tried with some from windows and it was the same :/

If you did not have any success with the "try&error"-method, the best way might be to contact bookeens support - they should know for sure.

Is there some reason for not using HTML (or MOBI, if it supports Chinese)? Then the encoding would be specified in the file. Firefox says this is UTF-16 little endian, but I have no idea how it tells this. Some other programs I tried also auto-detected the UTF-16, but others did not.

Is there a specific way to encode files in mobi (with calibre or mobipocket creator) to be sure that files will be read on the cybook ?

Select "UTF-8" encoding for the book. It's an option in Mobi Creator.

If it's UTF-16, little endian, then you can try this (on a linux system):

$ recode UTF-16LE..utf8 live.txt
$ dos2unix live.txt (I actually used vim to convert the utf8 file from dos to unix line endings)
$ recode utf8..html live.txt

Now you can wrap the text in <pre></pre> tags and save it as HTML (attached file). If you have an appropriate font, there should be no encoding problems here, as the text is pure ASCII.

Note: The attached file is .txt, rename is as .htm

For those who want to read chinese on their cybook, try this font

It works for me and no matter the encoding
