I have experienced this problem before with diffrent applications but never really took the time to figure out why it happend but now that it's really in my way I need to know what it is!

For example, I have here a font called Arcade. When it is typed in Microsoft word, this is what comes out:

But, when is it typed in Fireworks, this is what comes out:

I tryied it in Flash as well and it comes out the way it should just like in Word.
Sometimes when I type a particular font in Photoshop it comes out totaly diffrent! Are these things all connected somehow? How can I fix it?

Thank you,
