- Double-click the zip file.

and drop or unzip it to a location you can find. Close the zip file.
- Drag the .dot file to your STARTUP folder. It is normally C:Documents and Settings<your sign-on name>Application DataMicrosoftWordSTARTUP. Replace <your sign-on name> above with the name you use to sign-on the computer.
- Start Microsoft Word. This may be tricky. Because of viruses, macros need to be used carefully. It is recommended your macro security level be set to Medium or High. This macro requires the Medium level. Check with your computer support person before changing it, however.
- To check or change the macro security level, click
. To allow the Unicode Word Macros to run, select and close the box.

- A new group of icons should appear on your toolbar, if there is room.

If you ever need to remove the Unicode Macros, just close Word and drag the UnicodeWordMacros.184.108.40.2060.dot file out of C:Documents and Settings<your sign-on name>Application DataMicrosoftWordSTARTUP or whatever location you are using. But we hope you find it useful enough to leave installed permanently.
