See the !!Warning!! about CSX on John Smith's font site:


It says there, and I can verify by some experience, that the problem is in 
the more recent versions of Word.  You could possibly reinstall your older 
version of Word and see if that makes a difference, but then your publisher 
is not likely to be willing to follow suit.  You may have to convert to 
unicode, as I did.
