Looking for Armenian font to use in InDesign and Photoshop (Mac)

I need to create an Armenian document in InDesign and an image in Photoshop (on a Mac).

I'm having a hard time finding Armenian fonts that will work with these programs. Some websites that say the fonts work on Macs end up being PC-based only when I download them.

And are there any settings I need to change on my computer to be able to use Armenian fonts?

Thanks for your help!

What operating system are you using? Starting with OS 8.5, Macs started supporting True Type fonts (.ttf) which is what many of the fonts that you find on the web are now (since they run on both machines.)

If you do have 8.5 or higher, then you should be able to use those fonts that the sites said worked on Macs, or fonts from http://www.armsite.com/software/

I'm running 10.6.6. The problem is, I've tried installing a number of fonts from that site but when I select them, they show up in English rather than Armenian. Is there another setting I need to check? I need to use this in a document that has both English and Armenian text in it. Thanks.

Unicode is a system developed  to help make multi-lingual communications easier.

When you press the letter "A" on a western encoded keyboard, you will get the western letter "A." To get to the other letters (providing that the font has letters encrypted in their code.
I forgot that Macs now ship with Ariel Unicode.
If you go to the Applications folder and open Font Book you can see all of the different codes to reach the correct letters. You can also see them by going in the Finder and choosing Edit/Special Characters .

this site has information about inputting Armenian characters direct from the keyboard
