Wrong font in text element

I am trying to present two text elements side by side, one in IPA font for phonetic symbols, and the other in a normal text font.  The IPA font renders correctly, but not the text font.  I've tried "Arial" and "Courier New" but it always presents it in "Wingdings".



<text 005_correct_a1>


/ items = ("E")


/ txbgcolor = (200,200,200)


/ fontstyle = ("Ipa-samd Uclphon1
SILDoulosL", 50, false, false, false, false, 5, 2)


/ size = (5%,8%)


/ txcolor = (0,0,0)


/ halign = left


/ vjustify= center


/ position = (2,18)


</text>


 


<text 005_correct_a2>


/ items = ("pet")


/ txbgcolor = (200,200,200)


/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 50,
false, false, false, false, 5, 2)


/ size = (16%,8%)


/ txcolor = (0,0,0)


/ halign = left


/ vjustify= center


/ position = (7,18)


</text>


 



Any ideas or suggestions?

Note that you've specified the 'Symbol' character set


<text 005_correct_a2>
/ items = ("pet")
/ txbgcolor = (200,200,200)
/ fontstyle = ("Arial", 50, false, false, false, false, 5, 2)
/ size = (16%,8%)
/ txcolor = (0,0,0)
/ halign = left
/ vjustify= center
/ position = (7,18)
</text>


See the documentation for the /fontstyle attribute for details.
