But some characters did not show (cf. screen_01.png). They did also not show in the list of suggestions (cf. screen_01.png, screen_02.png). The problem is that the automatic font selection does not always yield the wished for results. What I tried was to remove the font or the fonts that get applied instead of the font that should be applied. Actually, I renamed the directory that contains the on-board fonts.

mv usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.6.2-arm/lib/fonts usr/local/Trolltech/QtEmbedded-4.6.2-arm/lib/fontsx
One result of this is that at start, nickel does not have access to any fonts (cf. screen_03.png), but as soon as one opens a book, nickel uses the installed custom fonts (cf. screen_04.png, screen_05.png).
I have the same problem with you, but i can't understand how to do it
Can you explain step by step more detail as possible how you do it
Thank you so much
