If I use Calibre to produce an Epub to get a layout I like, will the Nook touch honor the layout?

Thanks.
As you indicate in your post, the nook str has an option to use whatever is defined on the ePub itself, or you can override if you prefer. one thing that i noticed though, if the ePub has embedded fonts and the css specifies those fonts and a size, the nook str will not let you change font type or size. i saw that on one book, so the sample pool is small, others may be able to confirm. but bottom line is, if you format the book yourself, the nook str will honor that formatting.
