Convert a PDF with vietnamese font to kindle format and it correctly displays when reading with Kindle 3. With Kindle Fire, a lot of square box. How to fix it?

Do you mean the Kindle Fire can not display Unicode at all ? Or it has the ability and hopefully somebody will provide an app for that soon. I got an iphone which can display a Vietnamese-English dictionary (Kindle book) nicely.
I guess my question is will the Kindle Fire ever display Vietnamese font?
Or should I return the "tablet" now !

easiest way to fix this problem and read vietnamese on kindle fire is click on aA --> Typeface and change the font to Arial, Verdana ...

The font will be fine.

Have fun

I tried to change the font to Vernada and Arial but it still didn't work (even though the original document uses Vernada). I have a workaround that is to save the document to PDF, copy the PDF file to the "Books" folder on the Kindle Fire. You will loose the ability to change font size while reading PDF. However, you can change the font size in the original file first before saving it as a PDF file.

Here is my suggestion:
If you want to read Vietnamese on Kindle Fire, down load ebooks that have .prc, then using the software called Calibre to convert .prc file to MOBI format. Transferring your book to Kindle Fire, then go to Aa --> Typeface and change it to Verdana. There you go, beautiful Vietnameses font will show up.
