Nook central Europe Unicode epub font support?

[ Edited ]

Hello,

does default nook support Czech(Central Europe) chars in epub format without any additional modification?

As an example file, please use http://www.mlp.cz/koweb/00/03/34/75/66/valka_s_mloky.epub

(free Czech eBook from Karel Capek, released by Prague national library)

Only when the fonts are in epub (epub is a zipped folder of many files). It's easy to add those fonts to the book. Manual way:

 

You must unzip epub, copy ttf fonts into it (even windows fonts), add couple of lines to one of the files and zip it back. Here you have a short manual (in Polish - > google translator:smileywink: ).

Automatic way: There is a font embedding plugin to Calibre.

 

p.s. In PDFs fonts are always included.

Welcome!  :smileyhappy:

 

No, there is no native support for Czech, per the User Manual. 

 

The font would need to be embedded in the eBook file.

+in your kindness, make the wicked become good.+

i was looking into possibility of adding correct - full unicode fonts so my books would display correctly by default.

does anyone have any experience with that? using softroot or mynook.ru software modification for default font modification?
