How can I get Domino R6 to recognize a new font?

I've installed a new font on my client machine and Domino server. I'm running Windows 2000 and Domino R6. I have a total of 82 fonts on both my client and server. On my client machine, I also have Domino R5 and it recognizes the new font. I have rebooted everything several times. Is there something special I need to do in order to get Domino R6 to recognize the new font?
You're using the terms Notes and Domino interchangeably, and they aren't really interchangeable. "Notes" refers to the Notes client; "Domino" to the server.

Fonts installed on the server are not relevant. Unless you're working with server agents that create Rich Text, the server doesn't use fonts at all. Only the client setup matters.

I haven't experienced or heard of any problems getting the Notes 6 client to recognize the availability of a font, and 82 fonts is not excessive -- I have about 150 on my workstation. However, it's not clear to me what you mean by "recognizes" the font. Do you mean that the font name does not appear in the list in the Text Properties dialog, or that it appears in the list, but text that is formatted with that font doesn't display correctly?

If the latter, you may need to use File / Preferences / User Preferences, and in the "Additional Options" list, tick "Enable Unicode display."
