I have tried using some of the font's that come with Word XP on a few different computers, but can't seem to type in them.
EG: Select the font Estrangelo Edessa
As soon as you start typing it switches back to the font you had before hand. This is the same for about a dozen other font's that came with word on the standard installation.

Why don't you set that font as the default font for Word? Might be a hassle if you use a lot of different fonts in one word document, but that's what I'd suggest for now, until someone comes up with a better way of tackling this problem.

To set the default font:
In your word document click on Format > Font, and when the window pops up, select the font you want, and the size. Then click on the Default tab. This will set that particular font as the default font.

A long shot, but what printer have you got selected, and how is it set-up?

It could be that it reverts because it knows it cannot print the font?
