    Hi there,

    I've never seen anything like this before, but for some reason, one of my clients has a Win98 machine and it's not printing non-English characters properly. English ones, it handles fine. Non-English, it doesn't.

    Any thoughts?

    They might need the language thingies installed from the install CD. Might be able to get it from the office update site.

    Microsoft Office Language packs, although it usually prompts if you need these. Can it display characters fine on screen?

    If so, have you updated printer drivers?

    Possibly it may be an issue with the print driver you have? This is just a wild guess though. Try changing the print driver and see if it helps?

    That actually is what it is. Unfortunately, it's the Acrobat 4 print driver and I didn't have a copy of Acrobat 5 I could bring into the office (it's government.) But at least I isolated the exact issue.
