User is receiving the following error message within powerpoint 2003:
You selected a single -byte font to replace a double- byte font. Please select a double-byte font.
They were just changing fonts from one to another in the powerpoint presentation.

for some fonts, each character takes up 1 byte of memory.
Some take 2 bytes ( this we call as unicode support).

Font like Japanese, Chinese take 2 bytes .
Try selecting any uincode option if you have on the PowerPoint for the double byte fonts !
