    Dear All hi!
    I have been trying to convert text from MgGaramond (attaching fonts) to the usual TimesNewRoman included in the Microsoft Office Word 2003, but I get gibberish.
    Any insight?
    Thanks.:)

    How? Are you selecting the text and then changing the font?

    Do you have both fonts installed (Do they both appear in your Character Map)?

    I just tried the conversion in Abiword and it worked fine for the Roman letters, though some puctuation came through differently.

    Hi there! Thanks for the response. Perhaps, it was my fault as I omitted to state that there is no problem with roman characters, but I have a problem with the Greek fonts. The MgGaramond includes Greek fonts. I have typed extensive text in MgGaramond Greek, but when I select the text and try to apply TimesNewRoman I get the gibberish. Both fonts are installed on my system. I am attaching a sample in MgGaramond Greek.
    Any help?:)
    Thanks
