How to change the Fonts for ePubs

Hi,

I was wondering how you change the fonts on ePubs? I convert my .LIT, .PDF, or PDB to ePubs using Calibre and I want the fonts to change to Verdana or DejaVu sans. How do you change it? What do I need to do in Preference?

I don't know anything about programming. I tried reading different topics here but all the terms just made me all the more confuse. It's over my head. So can anyone help me with this in baby steps? Thanks!

NOTE: it's not the Calibre ebook viewer. Since I can change that to DejaVu and Verdana but the book when you transfer it to your device. Can you change the fonts?
