Yaacov -

My guess is that you want to use MS sans serif in a document.

The first thing that you need is to have the font installed. The next is
that MS Word97 must recognize it as an available font. It could be that
Word97 only recognizes it as what is called a "machine font," which means
that it is available only for use in such things as dialogue boxes by the
program and "not" available for use as a regular font. Quark has a font
like this called "Marlett." Q will not run without it, but you can't use

My next guess is that MS sans serif is a TrueType font. And, if you are
using Adobe's type manager in an old version. ATM does not recognize
TrueType fonts.

If MS san serif is a font available for purchase, a good place to start
looking for it would be:

Hope this helps

Happiness, joy & laughter
