    Ordinal - what we've got here is a failure to communicate

    RobertJarred

      I am running InDesign CS3 on XP.  I know there are other posts about ordinal problems, but none seem to lead me to a solution.

       

      My many fonts work with ordinal in MS Word when typing numbers like 22nd, 36th, etc.  However, the same fonts in InDesign do NOT display ordinal type.  Only a select few fonts work with ordinal in InDesign.  When I scroll to the "Open Type" submenu for most fonts, ordinal is in brackets [ordinal].  I still select it, but nothing comes of it. Even with basic fonts like Tiimes New Roman.

       

      Any ideas of how to fix this?  Just seems odd when the fonts work in MS Office but not Adobe.

       

      Thanks,
