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_mlo

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 ).
Automatic way: There is a font embedding plugin to Calibre.
p.s. In PDFs fonts are always included.

No, there is no native support for Czech, per the User Manual.
The font would need to be embedded in the eBook file.

thanks for reply. yes, i have tried font embedding into epub and it works (2 good "how tos" with plugins to make process easier are here
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?
