Font problem

  MichaelPaul 17:22 11 Feb 2005

My old computer had XP and Word 2000; my new computer has XP (dealer-installed) and Word 2000 (from the same disk as my old one). On my old computer a request for Univers 11 point gave me Univers 11 point; on my new computer the same request gives me Univers 10 point, both on screen and from the printer. A request for Univers 12 point gives me Univers 11 point.
This is annoying rather than life-threatening, but still: why does it happen, and is there anything I can do about iot?

Take the font from the old PC and replace the one on the new PC with it.

Thanks for the suggestion, but in the first place I'm afraid I don't know where to find the font on my old computer, which makes it difficult to transfer it, and in the second place the problem seems to me to be, not that Univers 11 is missing on my new computer, but that it is wrongly labelled Univers 12, so I don't see how the suggested transfer will solve the problem. Any other suggestions?
