Windows 7: Certain fonts do not appear on Word

Certain fonts do not appear on Word

Hi I am from Sri Lanka, and hence I use Sinhala and Tamil fonts from time to time. I have discovered that certain fonts appear fully on the Fonts Panel in the CP. However, other do not (that is, those others appear faded on the CP Fonts panel). WHen I change my font type to a Sinhala font that appeared fully on the panel, it types well on MS Word. But when I try to type in a Sinhala font that appear faded in the CP Fonts Panel, it types in English. Can anyone tell me how this can be, and what steps I can use to remedy it? to prevent it?
