(1) As Moon-Ryul Jung said, check that SPIonic appears in the font directory,

(2) If it does, then the problem relates to either (a) the version of Explorer
that you are using or (b) the way that Greek Vocabulary Builder is set
up in relation to your version of Explorer. Someone else wrote to me to say
that they could not see the Greek fonts in the Greek Vocabulary Builder in
Internet Explorer. I can see it my version and so too with Netscape Navigator.
 What I suggest is that you try looking at other sites that use SPIonic to see
if it shows up in your version of Explorer, e.g.:

If SPIonic shows up where it should here, then the problem is specific to
the way Greek Vocabulary Builder works in some versions of Internet Explorer.
If SPIonic does not show up here, then I would suggest either of the following:

- Get hold of a more recent version of Explorer
- Get hold of Netscape Navigator
- Check once more that SPIonic is installed in C:/windows/fonts.

Hope that this helps.
