Chris, I downloaded Arial Unicode MS and added the line

Font=Arial Unicode MS

in the .Conf for two modules as listed below.  The BHS looked better in the 
non-unicode version and the LXXM does not have any accent marks.  Also, I 
tried this with Websters Dictionary and BDB but still see squares instead 
of characters.

Any more input/ideas?
