    Compound Path - Fill Problem

    doydy

      Ok I am trying to create the outline for this 'B' but am having  problems.

      I created the outside line with the path tool then created in the inner  section in two parts (the > section then the upright section).  I  then selected both parts and created a compound mask.

      You can see from the image the problem is that after turning them in to a  compound path the transparant hole on the B is causing the B to fill  incorrectly.  I am wondering if there is any way to get this to work  properly?
