No. These fonts must be repackaged for Kindle DXi.

You can download source code of my packager from http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...5&postcount=13

Then, you can substitute existing font files with your specific font files (you should rename your fonts to names, used in the packager if you don't want to change scripts) and run build_dxi.cmd to build the update bin file.

You should have Python and OpenSSL installed on your computer in order to build the packager.

Has anyone gotten this to work? If so can they upload the files?
I just got a DX for my gandmother (needs large fonts) and I got the international version, so the standard font files don't work for it.
Not sure if we can package these fonts with the mechanism above, unless we can "unpackage" the original package Ted has (as we don't have the font files).

Does anyone on this form know how to contact Ted? I don't think we will be able to re-package the files without having the original font files.
