    Default EPUB Formatting: embedded fonts

    As a start up small time publisher I've been embedding a non-licensed font into all new ebooks I'm publishing. The embed passes EPUB validation perfectly, works on ADE, Nook for PC and the 1st edition Nook but fails on the 2nd edition Nook and simply goes to the default font. Any suggestions or tips? When I started publishing the Nook 2 was not available, it seems there is a minor tweak involved in the Simple Touch. I've tried various other methods to get it to display and simply cannot get an external font (that I package properly in the EPUB) to work. Any comments/suggestions greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    I'd suggest the ePub forum on mobileread.com. there's also an ebook production wiki over there: http://wiki.mobileread.com/wiki/E-Production (or its alias, 'eprdctn.org'). Also if you Twitter, post your question with hashtag '#eprdctn' and somebody will know exactly what you are talking about.

    So I followed the wiki link you sent, saw an interesting bit about Nook Idiosyncrasies and read from there. Within 5 minutes had the answer and solution. You are most definitely the man today! Thank you!
