Sony's ePub font support

Does the Sony 505 support ePub embedded fonts and it is able to override them?

Thank you.

I may have been wrong in saying that fonts cannot be over-ridden. See:

The Sony PRS-505 does not currently support a user-provided userStyle.css, but this might be possible if someone can work out how to get it in the right directory. However, I don't know if this could in principle over-ride embedded fonts. Something like the following might work:
Code:
body {
  font-family: serif;  ! important
}

I assume this also applies to the newer Sony's?

If the /sony/ebook/application directory could be mapped (symlinked) to user-space (any user writable directory), then it would be quite easy to put userStyle.css in an adobe/pfx subdirectory, and the fonts in adobe/fonts, as suggested here and here.

Now, who can hack a small program that we could drop in the Reader's memory, and which would do this trick ?

The first to succeed will get a lot of karma, I presume

On the Sony Readers, you can already add your own ePub fonts (ePub custom Fonts on 700 and 505), but without userStyle.css you have to add them explicitly to each ePub (and you can't do this with DRMed ePubs). The fonts go in the Reader's internal memory, e.g. in the FONT directory, and are then addressed as:
Code:
src:url(res:///Data/FONT/LiberationSans-Regular.ttf);
So, all we are missing is a way to add userStyle.css somewhere that is user accessible on the device.
