Why, it works perfectly well with me. Using Word 97 of course :-)

Possibly. Win 95 is not yet fully unicoded, so access to Unicode fonts
is restricted to characters that are mapped to appropriate CP pages
and for whose (pages) multilingual support (aka the cpxxx.nls files)
is installed. The method of selecting by codepage prevails in WordPad
and Word 95. Word 97, however, can access _any_ character in a font
(well, some do crash the app).
