Dear list members, are you using Bitstream charter csx font and Word 97?

A friend tells me that the Bitstream charter csx font with diacritic marks
no longer works in Word 97 for windows. Due I suspect to a some changes made
by Microsoft in how fonts are handled.

Is anyone else is experiencing this problem?

I ask this because I compiled the font which is in the Indology archive and
if this problem is general would like to replace it with a new version that
works even in Word 97.

On a more general note is it not depressing that upgrades to software often
seem to create as many problems as they solve?
