    'Indesign cc' and ePub and 2014 and fonts that work across platforms

    loveAndPeace Level 1

      After searching this forums and the web, I am posting the question.

       

      Does anyone know of a current 2013-2014 REFERENCE which PROVIDES a

      LIST of FONTS that are ACCEPTED by

      IPADS and KINDLES

      that WORK WITHOUT Any PROBLEMS.

       

      The article below is in contradiction to using OPENTYPE fonts saying they are not reliable unless used at 100%

       

      Background.

      I am creating an ebook using inDesign CC.

      Spent time using several videos as learning tools.... Terry White....

      Gabriel Power has a two part set of tutorials from 2009 which were a bit helpful but a lot has changed in 5 years.

       

      He SUGGESTS using OpenType and TrueType fonts.... That PostScript fonts will NOT work.

       

      Searching '2013 and Ebooks and best fonts '

      I did find several lists of fonts that work for the KindleWhite and the KindleFire.

      The article was not dated.

       

      I did this search and found:

      2013 and iPad and ebooks and 'which font do I use?'

      Embedding Fonts in eBooks

      The article above is in contradiction to using OPENTYPE fonts saying they are not reliable unless views at 100%.

       

      BUT this is all still CONFUSING.

       

      I would like to uses 6-8 fonts that will DISPLAY AS the font I use in my file.

      These would be fonts that work on both iPads and kindles primarily but on other mobile devices as well.  In this case I am not concerned about smart phone displays.

       

      Once again...

      Does anyone know of a current 2013-2014 REFERENCE which PROVIDES a

      LIST of FONTS that are ACCEPTED by

      IPADS and KINDLES

      that WORK WITHOUT Any PROBLEMS ? ?

       

      THANKS for the expert and experienced feedback.
