I've got a problem ... again.

A collegue had on her computer, before I formatted the thing, a font under the Insert|Symbol function called MS Reference 1 and also a couple of other reference type fonts (Office XP and also 2003). These "fonts" are still on one of the other computers (that's how I know about it). Now the thing is that with those "fonts" one can create one-character fractions quite easily. But now the only "font" that is to be found on her computer is MS Reference Speciality. Now with that "font" one can also use a number of different fractions although you can't create any new ones ... for that, I know, you have to use Insert|Object|MS Equation 3.0. But even though that isn't to difficult for her to use for the first time she is still insistent to know why I can't bring back that MS Reference 1/2.

I'd like to tell her to just STFU, stop complaining and use what's available but I'm looking like an moron for not being able to explain it.

Can't you just copy the fonts she needs from the Fonts folder of the computer that still has them to the one that doesn't?
