At least for Latvian Jan 30, 2004

the only way is to use "Rim" fonts.
(there are about 200 of them, equivalents of recpective Western fonts, but including also characters with diacritical marks.
This is for version 10, I do not remember about 9th, but 8th needed also ATM (Adobe Type Manager) installed.

Mà non è perfetto.

It works in CE Windows versions but...
Working on Western Windows versions, you should save your work as txt (CE script, Word 95 or WordPerfect should do the job) and then paste it in AI from a "honest" text editor like UltraEdit or PFE.
The savvy Notepad will "correct" the "illegal" characters.

Personally I use English Windows XP (Polish version is on the second computer).

One hint: switch to appropriate regional settings (through Control Panel). This will surely help

Semetimes, you can't change the regional settings.
The "256 chars code page" txt scenario works in ev'ry circonstance, I think.
If the appropriate font is available, of korz.
Tested on CE & Cyrillic.

Clipboard import problem Feb 1, 2004

I'm not sure about Polish, but we had a similiar problem with Asian languages awhile ago, we found that if we tried to copy directly from word that the data wouldn't import correctly. To remedy the problem, we first copied the text into an open notepad window and then re-copied the text in the notepad into Illustrator. I believe that this transformed the text from whatever codeset we were using into Unicode, which is the only codeset that notepad can support, and then when we copied it into Illustrator, it copied as unicode and therefore imported correctly.

A couple of notes, don't create a text box in Illustrator and try to copy into it, you will find yourself continually resetting the font. The best practice for speed is to set the font (which must support the language you are copying) but don't create anything, just have the pointer active in illustrator, then copy the text from notepad and then copy into illustrator, it will then create a text box for you with the proper text inside.

I hope this helps.
