Stupid me. I had typed all Turkish text needed for a map in Word. After C&P to Illy, none of the special glyths are showing up:( Short of typing again in Illy, is there a quick and easy way of input?

Thankx!

I've never run into something like this but I would maybe try to import the text with version 10 Illustrator first.

No, I've chosen a font w/ Turkish alphabets. The special glyths show up as question marks w/ space b4 and after. Have no problem typing up in the same font in Illy directly. Apparently Word handles special glyths differently from Adobe and I've stucked when trying to c&p:(

strange, especially since Turkish doesn't have that odd characters, I think they are all present in western iso 8859-1 (actually some of the characters are the same as in scandinavia. I assume that you are talking about Turkish transcribed with latin characters (the common/modern way).
