So there is no way to select a font for a screen inside rockbox.
I will have to edit my configuration files, right?

I used nimbues 14 on H300, since I dind't know how to load other fonts for
other screens I am not sure about the HD spinning.

I will try again your with your patch later.
The idea seems right, but a font slector gui must be created.
