I am using Windows XP.

I received a Microsoft Word .doc that was created in Word 2007.

I opened it in Word 2002.

I am to copy all the text from the Word .doc and paste/put into an Adobe Flash file.

The text in the Word .doc are of fonts that are from, what the creator of the file calls them, "standard Word 2007 fonts". He says Word 2007 comes with these standard fonts.

The creator of the file says that if I install Word 2007, I should be able to use any of these "standard Word 2007 fonts" in Flash or any other program/application. He says the fonts will show in the font list in any program/application.

1. Does Word 2007 comes with its own standard fonts?
2. If I install Word 2007 will I be able to use these Word fonts in any program, mainly Flash?

1. Yes, it does. It comes with new fonts, such as the default, which is no longer "Times New Roman", but is now "Calibri".

2. Yes, you will. When you install Word 2007, then the fonts will be installed to the default font directory, so you will be able to use them in different applications.
