Custom Fonts & The Economist

Hello.

Now that Amazon allows custom fonts to be installed on Kindles, how do I configure Calibre so that I can read The Economist, fetched from the website, in my favourite fonts? I went through the settings but can't seem to get it to work.

Thank you.

there is no setting for that. periodicals like the economist have to be in MOBI format, which does not allow custom fonts. At best you can change the default font the kindle uses, and you will then get that changed font for the economist as well

Thank you Kovid. Unfortunately, my Kindle doesn't allow me to change to custom fonts when reading content not directly downloaded from Amazon.
