IIRC). I think it is Windows-only (unless they've changed it). If your
font is basically Cyrillic, but with some modifications, it should be quite
simple to copy a Cyrillic font, then make the necessary changes. ("Simple"
of course is a relative term, for those of us who are computer-challenged.)
(A related problem I've never quite understood-- my computer has various
Cyrillic and Greek fonts available, but I find it odd that typing "a" does
not bring up Gk. or Cyr. alpha/a etc. )
