Yes. We even printed the manual in question this way last year.

The workaround seems to be to add the font family name to the
character format, which is OK in this instance, but would be odd if
using with a different font family. Then I would have to make a
different character format tag for that or all other font families.

This used to be OK before SP2. I wonder whether SP2 manages fonts
somewhat differently.

Thanks for the input.
