If you are using Word97, and can find your CD, then you can install the
fonts you need by looking in the directory "valupack\fareast". Run the *.exe
that matches the language you need support for. JPNSUPP.exe for Japanese,
KORSUPP.exe for Korean, CHTSUPP.exe for Traditional Chinese, CHSSUPP.exe for
Simplified Chinese. Word97 (English) does not support Thai. You'll need the
Thai version for that.
Once you install these packages (which include the necessary files for your
OS to support that Asian language, and a font), you can display and print
files in those languages, as long as your printer driver can support Unicode
printing, or you have a raster printer (e.g. inkjet) that uses the TrueType
fonts on your system.

Unicode-encoded TrueType fonts, they will work OK. Some fonts do not have a
Unicode cmap though, and these will not work except on a matching Asian
