Multi language support via Calibre

Hello all,

I came across problem with my Sony PRS-600 that it does not supports other encodings besides ASCII. That is why i'm using PDFs.
But PDF is a bad solution, because it is large file and it has poorly support of fonts size.

My question for Calibre's developers, is there any way that i can (or in the future) configure the fonts on my device via Calibre?

Thx

Actually sony reader does support other latin encodings provided that you use LRF fonts.

See this post

However that does not include cyrrilic or some other more exotic languages.

Actually i need Hebrew font support...

Basically all I need is a richer set of fonts to my device?

Thanx for answering

This is an explanation on how to embed fonts manually into epub:

Another option is to store fonts in one folder on your reader and than point all books/recipe generated content to use those.
