Bjørn, I'm sorry to say that it's not that easy. MS Word handles all text as Unicode (UCS4) internally, so when you copy the text, you are getting Unicode characters that FrameMaker doesn't understand. If you want to get the Greek text out of Word, you will need to save it as a "Plain Text (*.txt)" file. When you do this you are prompted to select the encoding you want for the file, make sure the "Other encoding" radio button is selected and scroll up until you find "Greek (Windows)" then click on "OK". You can then open the text file in either a text editor (I use TextPad) or just open it up in FrameMaker. Once you get the text into Frame you can use the Times New Roman Greek, Arial Greek and Courier Greek fonts on your Win2K or XP machines to read and publish the Greek text. I hope this helps, Steve .==========================================================. Stephen L.

When I paste text from a greek Word document directly into FrameMaker all text turns to nonsense even if I use times new roman greekn in the FrameMaker doc and in the Word doc. One CAN past greek text from PageMaker into FrameMaker. Now what is actually the differences in codepage in FrameMaker and Word? There has to be some relationship between the hex values in the two programs or is it Windows clipboard which messes up the copy/paste?
