Read use a prettier font for Epub

Description

I download the same book with Get Books, in pdf and epub format.
Seem like Epub uses the DejaVu LGC Serif font. Perhaps among the free fonts shipped with the XO are prettier fonts to be used in epub viewer.

See the comparision shots of the fonts.

Forgot to link to the proposal page http://wiki.sugarlabs.org/go/Design_Team/Proposals/Fonts_For_Reading, which has some screenshots of Read with a few fonts (more could be added perhaps). The one I would choose is Century Schoolbook L, it was specifically developed for young children text books, readable and esthetically pleasing.

  • Resolution set to notabug
  • Status changed from new to closed

Pretier fonts are subjective sadly. Closing as notabug
