Russian Dual Nationality Fo

Mail*Link(r) SMTP Russian Dual Nationality Fonts.

 I have recently been trying to create a dual nationality (Russian/English)
Type 1 font using Fontographer 4.0.4 on the Macintosh, with the aim of
using this font to transfer files between the MacOS and Windows 3.1.
Having experimented with Fontographer I have found that 95% of my new font
will transfer cross-platform, but certain characters give erratic results,
often being substitued for invisible characters or characters from
elsewhere in the font.
I have browsed through your Web site and I have a copy of your Unicode
Mapping List, which I am trying to get to grips with, but I would first
like to confirm with you that what I am attempting is possible with the
help of a proper understanding of unicode.
I am wondering if limitiations in Windows are affecting the output of my
font, or whether I have just not conformed to the unicode standard

Any comments, help or advice would be much appreciated at this stage as I
am starting to run out of 'inspirations' and the demand for a dual
nationality font is growing in my Mac/PC colleagues!

P.S. I should add that I have a copy of Acrobat Pro 2.0 for both Mac and PC
and have experimented with various types of encoding, but I still get odd
results. Could Acrobat help me in this font dilemma?

Thanking you in a advance for your help,
