FrameMaker does not directly support the extended character sets
available in many OpenType fonts. There are some registry hacks
that can be performed to provide a "window" over other parts of
the font, but such techniques are not supported or endorsed by
Adobe AND can leave you with documents that are incompatible
with future versions of FrameMaker!
