Language Support

I am trying to type in an indian language called Telugu. The language is fully supported by XP and I had it working, then I had to format my computer and now the language isn't working correctly. The main problem is that the language has sub letters, when I do the regular letters the font is perfect, when I try to add the subletter the entire thing becomes squares as if it's not supported. The weirdest part is that if I type in the "font" box or the "size" box in MS Office, the font works (even with the subletters), any advice would be appreciated. One more thing, before the language tool bar that I have had an EN for English and a TE for Telugu, now it's some keyboard icon that I click on and than a drop down menu has English and Telugu....any ideas on this as well....thank you much

The person forgot to install a printer. And set that printer as the default printer. I will not attempt to explain why this matters.

I set my printer to default and just this morning found out that the language works fine in everything other office program other than word. Tried again in word and still brings up blocks when I do sub-letters. Thanks for the help

Time to test if your selected font has these letters.

Tell me the name, date and size of the .TTF file you are using.

Thanks for helping me though this. I actually have read that there is not need for me to use any TTF outside of the fonts included with XP. This font is called "Gautami." The font has cleared with every office program other than word, I'm thinking that I may have to uninstall and try reinstalling office...the only problem with this is that Outlook is configured and has a ton of contacts/emails, backing them all up is a bit of a pain. Any more suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Link, comment.

Close enough. Now tell me which character code you used from said fone. I'll check mine.

Since it's an included font, why are you considering reinstalling XP since we can examine the ttf file with Charmap as well as fetch a good copy from the XP CD or other machine?

http://www.wazu.jp/gallery/views/View_Gautami.html shows a version number for this font file. This is why I asked for details about the name, date and size. I'll leave you to ponder why I asked this question.
