Unicode text for buttons, etc

I'm new to using RunRev and so forgive me if this has been covered in  
a previous thread.

I'm looking for a method of delivering what will potentially become a  
digital foreign language textbook, for which I need full Unicode  
support.  I'm playing with the trial version and am having a hard  
time getting Unicode to 'stick' in simple button labels.  Sometimes  
the characters stick (after retyping a few times) and sometimes I  
just can get them to stay and get jumbled up.

My questions are:
  -  is there a way to set the default font of the entire stack  
during development? (the setting I found also doesn't seem to stick)
-  is Unicode reliably usable within the authoring environment? (I've  
seen a few references to calling unicode text files, is that the only  
way?)
-  Do you have any recommendations for working with unicode foreign  
languages in RunRev?

Thank you in advance for your help!
