Bizarre bug in the Adobe font driver , regarding CE and Greek codepages
Here's Adam Twardoch's explanation: There is a bizarre bug in the Adobe font driver (ATM or the one built into Mac OS X) with respect to the "Windows Greek codepage" flag. If a font is flagged as "Roman" + "CE", then ATM thinks that the primary codepage of the font is CE, if the font is flagged as "Roman" + "Cyrillic", then ATM thinks that the primary codepage is Cyrillic, but if the font is flagged as "Roman" + "CE" + "Greek" or "Roman" + "Cyrillic" + "Greek", then ATM thinks that the primary codepage of the font is Roman. QuarkXPress only likes fonts that the system says the primary codepage is Roman. So in short, it may be help to activate the "Windows Greek" codepage flag.
