Dear Paul,

Did you try to install OpenOffice and see how that works?
I always use OpenOffice (an open source office program) on a Linux
system and it works great with any fonts (except for Hebrew vowels,
but that's just my laziness).
You can install OpenOffice on MSWindows too. It will soon beat
MSOffice in any aspect, not only price.
Apart from that, I don't know a thing about MSWindows.

Best regards,
