Fonts in Word

I use a Mac with Word 98 and also have the problem of bringing Word files
from Windows 97 and 2000 that Mike describes when I am editing our journal.
The Windows Greek and Hebrew fonts do not show up in the Mac Word 98. I have
been able to get around the problem by first bringing them into Word 5.1 for
the Mac. It recognizes the Linguistics Software fonts from Windows just
fine, I believe--maybe there is an occasional problem. Then I bring the 5.1
file into Word 98. I have just upgraded to Word 2001 for the Mac but have
not tried any conversions yet.
