Hi, all.

IÂam using a special character,Âusing the Symbol font,Âin some of my subheads. Some cross-references refer to those subheads.

When I update myÂbook file, theÂspecial character disappears in the x-refs and the normalÂASCII character replaces it.

When I manually select the cross-reference and update it individually, the Symbol character reappears.

Naturally, I was hoping to finish this book today . . .

What is going on? How do I fix it?
