Thanks Bert. It's nice to have a reply from someone who reads one's post
carefully and who replies with something pertinent - rather than taking  it
as an opportunity to embark on a flight of irrelevant invective against
their pet hate.

I think I must have got TRAJAN PRO with Adobe Premier and it shows up in
that program. I still don't know why it won't work with Scribus or GIMP.

I have downloaded CINZEL and it looks like it will be a good substitute.
