Directionality, font-embedding and ADE

Hi all,

How can I get ADE to display my Hebrew text correctly?

I created a very basic epub, with embedded font and Epubcheck-ed it.

It looks very nice on Calibre. On Sigil, and FBR Reader, the font changes to the standard font (Arial I think), but otherwise it also looks fine. On Mobipocket the text is displayed left to right, and there's no image. I didn't check it on any device.

On ADE (my main focus at the moment), I get only ???? AND the directionality is wrong (left to right).

I attach the epub. Your comments will be appreciated.

interesting you have Hebrew script in the contents window...

i don't know enough to offer any definitive advice, other than perhaps adding appropriate fonts into your style sheet.

Yes :-) I wish the text would be in Hebrew as well. I wonder why it works only in the TOC...

I assume you mean adding Calibre's Liberation font variants? (it was mentioned in another thread...). I'll try that (thanks!).

Another version of the file

I replaced the previous font with 4 variants of the Liberation font and created another version of the file. As you can see, it still doesn't work.

I added a paragraph in English (to check if ADE accepts THAT, and it did),
and I checked the file with two additional readers: Bookworm and the Firefox add-on - and it looks OK.

What do I do about ADE? Does anybody have additional suggestions? Maybe there are other fonts I can use, or something else I haven't thought of...

Has anybody solved that particular ADE problem yet?

In general, I'd appreciate further leads that might help me solve it.

Thanks :-)

Sarah

Otherwise just accept the limits of ADE ! It seems to have its own quirks about ePub....

GeoffC, Hi,

Thanks for the links. I more or less followed the guidelines regarding fonts published on the Threepress blog. I haven't tried the Indesign option (I don't have the software) - and there's no proof that it'll solve my particular problem (I'll have to find that out). Like it or not - ADE is one of the major software readers, and I wouldn't like to give it up yet.

But thanks :-) for the pointers and your kind comments.

Sarah
