I did not realize until later the Luna Windows XP theme in the screen
shot. In that case, could you let the list know your version of
AbiWord, Windows (SP1 or SP2), and Uniscribe (check the AbiWord about
box under Help, About, it's usp10.dll. For me, with Windows XP SP2, I
have usp10.dll version 1.420.2600.2180.

If this matches your version (or yours is newer), please file a bug at , which is the best place to resolve
issues like this.

Just a quick FYI - Sharp remarks tend to have the opposite effect of
intended, and may discourage developers from prioritizing problems
brought up in this way, in favor of those brought up with as much
information, presented concisely, as possible, because it's simply more

Also, make sure you reply to so that other
users and developers can help answer your questions.
