Hi all.

My setup: x86 Arch Linux¹ with Wine 20030318.  I have a Microsoft Word
document that I'm trying to open in TXWords² under Wine.  This document
is written using the Bookman font.  When I open the document in TXWords,
all the text is displayed in the Courier New font.

Bookman is available through X:

  root at test04# xlsfonts -fn '*bookman*'
  -urw-urw bookman l-bold-i-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-adobe-standard
  [snip many similar lines]
  -urw-urw bookman l-medium-r-normal--0-0-0-0-p-0-microsoft-cp1252

Documents with other fonts work just nicely.  I have copied all the
fonts from the Fonts directory in my Microsoft Windows NT installation
to a directory that Wine can access.  Bookman is not in that directory,
but Bookman Old Style is.

Why doesn't Wine use the Bookman available through X to display that
document with?

I've tried the following alias in my Wine config file without any

  "Alias0" = "Bookman, -adobe-helvetica-, subst"

Is there some glaring mistake I don't see?  Can I alias Bookman to
Bookman Old Style somehow?

Thanks for any help,
