Hi Michael, WGL Assistant works great but it also creates font instances labelled as FONTNAME CYR, FONTNAME Greek, etc. Windows XP created the ones for Arial and Times New Roman to help non-Unicode compliant apps, like Framemaker, display and print documents using the non-Latin based glyphs in the font sets.
