Multiple Font Families in one Ebook (K2)

I've got a copy of a novel written by a friend which I've formatted to have various parts of the text in different font families as well as sizes and styles. This all shows up in the Mobipocket Reader for the PC. However, when I load it into my K2, I get the styles (bold, italic) and a range of different font sizes, but the families go to pretty much one family.

How do I correct this?

This is how the Kindle works. There is only one font for MOBI ebooks. There is now a monospace font, but I'm not even sure you can specify sans-serif.

MobiPocket also recommends leaving the choice of font to the reader, although you can specify the font in a MOBI ebook if you are sure it will be available on the target device (and get the font name exactly right).
