Subject: Half-hearted Progress with Unicode...
I hope you don't mind my sharing my progress / frustration: after I
installed Arial Unicode MS, FrontPage prints the SYMBOLS but not the font
correctly, while Explorer prints the font but not the symbols.. But that's
on my little Canon printer in Brandenburg (former East Germany)...
Is it possible that it's a printer driver problem? I can't think of trying
anything other than my London HP printer...
With best wishes for a Happy New Year, I trust you had a splendid Christmas!
