It may not be the CSS. But instead something wrong in the code in the XML files. I had an issue where I had a <h2> and no closing </h2> so the text in that XML came out all bold.

One tiny error in the CSS and my reader (ADE) ignores that section.

It looked fine on the PC (Sigil and Calibre)

I recall a similar problem some time ago. It turned out to be a problem in the @font-face declaration of the embedded font; it had an alternative font given in the declaration, but alternatives should only be used in the font references. Perhaps if you post your css file we can sort out the problem.

I downloaded and installed this plugin into Calibre. However, the Cyrillic text is still not readable. It replaces Cyrillic characters with other crazy symbols.

Can you advise?

Plugin from artshim works fine on Windows 7, but doesn't work on Mac OS X Lion. Is there any way to make it work on Mac OS X?

Thanks in advance!

1. When you convert with Calibre turn on "No default cover" available at EPUB Output!
I had the ????? problem with (some) Russian epubs and the fonts seemed to be fine in the epub (embedded). As soon as I did a conversion of an epub that caused ???? with "No default cover" (epub to epub) the Russian characters showed up perfectly. Any ideas?

Hi,
I managed to embed fonts once in an epub but I'm having problems with a second one.
I followed the instructions and added the extra css body { etc and on Calibre's viewer it seems to be working fine but on my Sony PRS-T1 I'm getting ??? for every greek accented character.

Here's the resulting epub. Could anybody help please?

That looks like the same epub someone was having trouble with in this thread (post #13). You could see if the same solution suits you.
