I need to create a wide or extended version of my Adobe Palatino STD / Open Type font. I am creating ePub3 documents of books that all had fonts stretched 112% for easier reading and the paragraphs are justified. Browsers and eReaders do not support the style tag, so I thought I would just make the font naturally wider and embed that in the document. Decades ago we used TypeStyler for this (Showing my Age!) Any thoughts

Most EPUB readers if not all don't support scaling of any font. Scaling a font in print is neither a good idea, as it is bad typography. You need to license an extended font.
