epub change font calibre

hi,
I've tried to find a solution on the web but I didn't succeed. I have a bebook one and I would like to use calibre and convert to epub format but with a different font from deafult. For instance arial font.
I know that calibre has in the conversion options "Look & Feel" the "Extra CSS" that should be used to embed the new fonts and so I have tried to add some CSS configurations (some are in this forum) and convert but nothing. When I put the converted epub on the bebook one always the old default font.

I would add that I have on the /fonts directory of the SD card the arial font (with all the required extensions arial.ttf arialbd.ttf ariali.ttf etc.) and I would like to use some input into the "Extra CSS" field to associate the epub with this arial font.

I appreciate if you have any inputs. :!:

First let me say that I don't have a Bebook I have a Sony PRS505 and a PocketBook 360. Also my custom fonts are stored on the main device not the SD card.

Nevertheless assuming (maybe wrongly) that the Bebook acts in a similar manner to my own readers you should be able to achieve what you want.

Please can you post the Extra CSS you have already tried on the conversion Look&Feel page?

Probably not what you want, but you can embed a font by converting to lrf and then to epub
