 WORD 97 - inserting symbols

Recently upgraded to 97.  When try to insert symbols - the viewer just
shows an empty box where each symbol used to be displayed for each font
option.  When you insert a symbol into a document, the symbol appears
correctly, but without the manual open you can't easily determine which
symbol is which.

Also, with existing documents that had symbols inserted, this problem
exists - although it will print out and be viewable then.

Any thoughts?!

Hi folks,

Try booting Word 97 with standard VGA video selected.
If the fonts are now normal, go to your vendor's site
and download an updated video driver.  If you have Matrox
video it's 3.30 I believe.

Also, be sure you're using only TT fonts and not Unicode
fonts if you have HP 4 printer and many HP deskjets, which
can't handle Unicode fonts from the current MS/HP printer
drivers.

I have a similar problem with Word 97 only -- worked with Microsoft
Tech Support for days! with no resolution.  I even mentioned the
Unicode fonts (saw the article in MS's KB) but not once did they ever
consider them to be the problem.

How does one only use TT fonts?  My user is printing to an HP 5 SI/MX.

Thanks.
