Need help with making unicode Chinese epub for Sony 505

I already did a search on this topic but still not able to undertsnad what need to be done.

Source are standard UTF-8 RTF format file.

He is what I have done so far:
1. Created a root directory of the 505 call "fonts" and copy in the standard MSFT mingliu.ttf

2. Created the following css and enter it into Calibre :
@font-face {font-family: "Ming";font-weight: normal;font-style: normal;src: url(res:///Data/fonts/mingliu.ttf);}

body {
font-family: "Ming", serif;
}

3. Use Caliber to convert the RTF fiel into ebpub.


The epub file can be read in PC but it will either: 1. Not show up at the reader menu (so most likely 505 belive the book is bad" . Or 2. All character show up as "????"

Can someone help out?


Someone on the 505 forum suggested that the font may not be correct. Can some one point me to the right Chinese font to be use in making epub ebook?

Thanks

No, the font will not be used for the system menus. It will only be used for the book. Also, just having the font family in the body deceleration does not always work. You have to look at the code for the various chapters and see how it is being done. You may have to add the font family to other parts of the CSS.
