Subject: Type Asian Characters in English XP Pro

I am trying to type Japanese Kanji characters in English Windows XP Pro
with US Input Parameters/keyboard. I have enabled the East Asian
Options under Regional settings and can thus display asian characters
from Japanese websites. But for the life of me I cannot select any of
numerous Japanese fonts I have installed and type in Word/Excel/etc.

Really all I'm after are the numeral characters.

Anyone with some hints?

Thanks,
tM

Is that Word XP on Windows XP Pro or ...? What are your Office and
Windows versions. Hint: There is NO relationship between the Pro in
Windows XP and the Pro in Office.

Does your IME work? Can you get the insert char functions to work within
each app?

It's Office XP Pro.

It won't work with the fonts I have installed, but using Jim's Kanji it
does. I think that it's a different problem than fonts at this point.
Thanks for your help you got me on the right track.

Here are the number from 0 to 10 (Chinese, but since you say Kanji, they are
the same):

???????????

Can you cut and paste them?

Nope my news reader converted them to 0x3F's

I was able to use Jim's Kanji Fonts finally, but I have to type them in
using the Alt<3-digit> input method which is quite tedious...

Are the following translations correct?

I don't have anyone here who can verify the translation.
