      Hi, June,

      The problem may be the way in which the Normyn font is encoded. The VRI, CSX
      and Normyn fonts do not use the international Unicode standard. If you are
      using a non-English computer, your operating system may be using fonts that
      need the character codes that are being borrowed by the Normyn font. For
      example, the Pali letter "A" with the bar over it is character number 256 in
      Unicode. The Norman font borrows character 238 for this character, which in
      Unicode is a small letter i with a caret over it. This is one reason that I
      created the Georgia and Verdana fonts. They use Unicode character codes.

      I'm not sure that there is a correct answer for Word when it asks you what
      encoding to use. None of the non-Unicode Pali fonts use an encoding that
      Word would understand.

      thanks for your reply.

      it looks better now, but still can't read certain words...which
      encoding did you choose? word is asking me to select an encoding.
