I am having a problem with unicode on the Windows platform, 
and it is driving me nuts.

I develop my Cherokee dictionary on Mac OSX.  I use a 
unicode Cherokee font for the Cherokee syllabary. It works 
fine on my OSX builds, but in my Windows standalones, only 
the first word shows up in the Cherokee font. Subsequent 
words show up as outlined boxes.  Also, when I use words in 
the Cherokee font mixed with regular English words, the 
Cherokee words again show up as black boxes. 

Does anyone know why only the first word is displaying 

I'm stumped.
