After you apply Service Pack 3 for Microsoft Windows NT 3.51, some True Type fonts may not display correctly. Documents that display corrupt fonts may still print properly.


Code in WINSRV.DLL did not handle an entry in the font cmap table properly.


Replacing WINSRV.DLL with the version that exists in Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 Service Pack 2 (or earlier Microsoft Windows NT 3.51 version) should restore normal functionality.


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in Windows NT version 3.51. A fix to this problem is in development, but has not been regression-tested and may be destabilizing in production environments. Microsoft does not recommend implementing this fix at this time. Contact Microsoft Product Support Services for more information on the availability of this fix.
