You say 1.2.1? You mean 1.2.1CVS? or some 1.2 package called 1.2.1? If CVS, 
from what date? (Help About has the Build ID)

We need to know what font it is, have a sample file and a few Unicode 
character numbers that you have trouble typing in. Right click on the Insert 
Special window on the character to get the hexadecimal code. You can also try 
typing them in via unicode entry, ie F12+unicde char shown in hexadecimal.

Please send me a sample ASAP (today!?!) to my email so we can see what is 
wrong and if anything have it fixed for 1.2.1.
