    The example you gave is missing an 's' as well. Are you sure you don't need to just embed the font in the text field?

    If embedding the font doesn't work, try changing the font, just to see if the "y" shows up. Another possibility may be that the text filed is to small, or the font too large. PLay around with different sizes.

    sometimes the easiest solutions are overlooked.
