    Unicode copy & paste support is a little flaky in InDesign 1.x. You should
    have better results
    in 2.x. You might also try saving the Unicode text in one of InDesign's
    recognised import formats (I use a plain .txt file whenever possible), and
    then placing the file in an InDesign document. This has worked more
    consistently for me than copy/paste.
