Century has a fixed width version? I'll take your word for it.

Did you install the font using the Windows Control Panel? Frequently, if you load fonts using the manager of a specific program (Corel Draw, for example), the system won't recongnize it for use with other programs, like IE or Word. Generally speaking the fonts should be TrueType fonts as well. Finally, a proportional font won't show up on the fixed width list, because it isn't a fixed width font.

Why has this not been updated/awarded or anything?  You said it was URGENT, yet no response.  That just makes no sense, sorry.

Thanks for returning and finalizing your question.  Anytime you choose to grade less than an A, please comment as to why.  This helps all involved, including others who may visit this question at a later time for help.  Some experts look at grading history before deciding to help someone, so that also may have an impact to you and how quickly your future questions are answered.

The points to you are always the same, but the points granted the expert depend upon the grade.  Using 100 points as an example.  100 at A = 400 ... 100 at B = 300 .... 100 at C = 200, so it also has a point impact to the experts.  

If the grade chosen was in error, let me know, and I can correct this.

Moondancer,

Century does NOT make a fixed width font. That doesn't mean it can't be used as one, but it'll look funny -- and you'd have to use something like Adobe's type manager or Corel's font installer to get it to work.
