format.

the

>>Hi all,
>>
>>I'm simultaneously posting this on Techwr-l, though it is a Hebrew problem
>>(maybe someone there has experience with multi-language issues).
>>
>>Background:
>>We work in English-only Word 97 on Hebrew-enabled Windows 95. We often
have
>>to work on text files that were generated in Hebrew. When we open the
>file,
>>the originally Hebrew text appears in Greek characters. Selecting all and
>>applying Web Hebrew Monospace font restores the Hebrew letters without
>>compromising the English text. We save the files as .doc while we work,
and
>>then save as .txt before inserting the help into the system.
>>
>>Problem:
>>In several of the files, the text that was originally in Hebrew (appearing
>>in Greek in our English-only Word) seems to have changed its character
set.
>>Changing the font doesn't help, nor does changing the language. The person
>>who worked on these particular files doesn't remember exactly what she did
>>differently.
>>
>>Request:
>>Does anyone have any idea what could have caused this problem and how we
>can
>>solve it?
>>
>>Thanks muchly,
>>Sharon
