We, who are not programmers, and don't understand a lot of things inside a program, need a exe file on windows platform so that we can also add fonts. I guess someone can help us having the same enjoyment as the programmers' are enjoying. Shouldn't we?

See post #22, hkabir: it seems the Great Ones already have something like that in mind.

And now, let us move the Great Ones to wrath, lest they withold their Bountiful Blessings from us.

Finally I got a hold of all three good Unicode fonts (Roman, Swiss and Monotype). Now we have fonts, which are essentially identical to the original packaged ones, but have full European language support. For Monotype font I had to use the Courier10 Pitch Win95 BT font, that required a slight mod to the kconfig.xml. The latest /opt cramfs image is at the same spot. The instructions for loading the image into the device are still valid.

Thank you!

It's probably good idea to add archive with those fonts and updated kconfig.xml to replace those on PC

Could I trouble you to try a Japanese text with it to see if it works?

The new fonts only include Unicode sets up to Cyrillic (Latin based languages, Greek, Cyrillic based languages). There are neither Chinese nor Japanese characters there. You would have to use full Unicode fonts, i.e. Iwata (from the original Librie).

Slava,
All of that is already there. You just need to learn to use cramfsck. kconfig.xml is in the sony/ebook/application directory, the fonts are in the sony/ebook/FONT directory.

Upd.: Actually, I just checked - the kconfig.xml file is different on a PC vs the ebook. So you shouldn't copy one to the other. But the fonts part is similar. This is what you would need on the PC:
Code:
	<ui>
		<font face="Swis721 BT" href="[bbebFontPath]" engine="FreeType">
			<family name="roman" uses="Dutch801 Rm BT"/>
			<family name="swiss" uses="Swis721 BT"/>
			<family name="modern" uses="Courier10 Win95BT"/>
			<family name="script" uses="Dutch801 Rm BT"/>
			<family name="decor" uses="Dutch801 Rm BT"/>
			<family name="tech" uses="Courier10 Win95BT"/>
		</font>
	</ui>
