This should be because of old software. What is the exact software you
are using for that? If you have a copy of MS Office 2003, for example,
can you reproduce the bug there?

This is a bug. But I don't know if it can be fixed in a font instead of
in software. I will check and see.

Again this is old software. I don't have the problem on Windows XP's
Notepad. And this cannot be fixed in the font.

This should be due to a setting somewhere. Would you please tell me
about the versions of software you're testing it with?
