How many font sizes on Jetbook Lite and Aluratek Libre?

The Jetbook Lite and Aluratek Libre have two fonts - Ariel and Verdana. I have seen some references saying they have 5 font sizes and other references saying they have 6 font sizes. Which is true? Also, is there any way to format an e-book with a serif font that will display on these devices?

I can answer that no matter what you format your ebooks for you are stuck with the fonts that are built into the jetbook.

You can change the fonts in PDF as long as you store the entire page as an image. Not a very good solution.

So much to discover. How do we change the font size in the jb original? I saw the two fonts, but not an option to change the size.

Button in the upper right hand corner of the cursor keys, looks like a magnifying glass with an F in the center. While reading a book, push it, it will pop up a menu showing you the sizes.

I use an aluratek Libre with Sigil and have successfully embedded fonts in my .epub files that render properly on the libre.

@font-face {
font-family: FreeMono, Regular;
font-weight: normal;
font-style: normal;
src: url(../fonts/FreeMono.ttf);
}

My version of Sigil does not create the font subdirectory in the .epub file automatically, so I have to move the fonts required by my book into the .epub file manually; apart from that it's all good. Additionally, Sigil will also wipe out any existing fonts sub-directory in the .epub file on save, so I have to add those files back in each time.

Small price to pay though, to get all the fonts I like on my books, and not be restricted to the 'built-in' selection. Thanks to Sigil and to Aluratek

Edit Update: Sigil 0.2.0 beta MAY make adding embedded fonts to .epubs almost as easy as adding images. ( but it's not quite there yet )
