Won't let me change the font on a field

Post

I use a script to change passwords (because IWP doesn't support dialog).  So my users type in their old and new passwords.  I would like these fields to not show in clear text.  So  I thought changing the font to Symbol or Wingdings would at least provide security from the person over your shoulder.  Filemaker has these fonts but won't let me use them.  In the Format Text window, I can choose Symbol but when I click OK nothing happens.  If I change the font to say Ariel then all works as it should. 

I should be able to use these fonts or why else would they provide them in the list.  Do I need to enable these weird fonts somewhere before I can use them?
