My office recently upgraded to FrameMaker 11 in a Windows 7 environment. We 
previously used FrameMaker 8 | Windows XP.
We are in the process of replacing the following fonts:
Zapf Dingbats

With the following:
Courier New
ITC Zapf Dingbats Std Medium

I am having problems with Zapf Dingbats being replaced with ITC Zapf Dingbats 
Std Medium. I have used the FrameMaker 11 fonts pod to update these fonts for 
all of the appropriate FrameMaker files.

We use an automated process to create the FrameMaker files. The process 
involves importing XML feeds into Structured FrameMaker 11 using an automated 
process. After the XML has been imported, it is fully formatted in FrameMaker 
11. After I select the xml file to import and the automated process is about to 
import the xml file into FrameMaker 11, the FrameMaker console is displaying 
this message:
The "Zapfdingbats" font is not available.
It will be replaced by "AdobePiStd".
The "Zapfdingbats" font is not available.
It will be replaced by "AdobePiStd".
The "Courier" font is not available.
It will be replaced by "Courier New".

When I view the fonts in this newly created FrameMaker 11 file in the font pod, 
the "AdobePiStd" font is displayed as part of the fonts in this file. I did 
update the Zapf Dingbats occurrences in the FrameMaker template to ITC Zapf 
Dingbats Std Medium and I updated all of the other systems files as well. I did 
update the FrameMaker Edd.

I looked at the maker.ini file and I noticed the following code:
; Font Entries Added in Frame 8 due to Font Set Changes
Zapfdingbats, *,*= Adobe Pi Std,*,*

In the automated process that I am using, when the xml feed is about to be 
imported is this line of code causing FrameMaker 11 to override the font 
changes that I made to all of the FrameMaker 11 files? Should I change this 
line of code to this in order to fix the problem:
Zapfdingbats, *,*= ITC Zapf Dingbats Std,*,*

Any help that you can give me will be appreciated.
