Windows 7: Font Issue

Font Issue

As a web developer who mainly uses flash I've come accross a problem with fonts. From Windows 7 I no longer am able to select the font Arial Baltic. Understanding that infact Arial Baltic is actually an alias of Arial how can I get this font to be selectable in flash? I'm pullin my hair out here!

I need to do this as all the text fields are setup to be Arial Baltic and need to be set this way due to conflicts with text built on the fly using Arial.

This could be simply related to the fact that the Beta/RC do not come with the full language support that the RTM/Retail does.

However, part of the windows update for last week included a large set of language support updates.

You may want to check what Baltic language support was included in this (a total of about 30 updates were available), as this may provide you with the font support you need

Unfortuantly no change, I've checked the FontSubstitutes in the registry and Arial CE,238 : Arial,238 is there, but I'm guessing that only get used when open docs which have the Arial Baltic in them and not authoring them.
