Have run into an interesting issue that I haven't been able to get to the bottom of.

The font in question is "Century Gothic", a fairly well-known and used font. When using the "regular" setting, everything seems to space out just fine. But if I attempt to use Bold, Italics, or Bold Italics, the character spacing goes nuts:

Here is a bit of test text in Pages:




Here is the same text (copy/pasted) into a Word 2011 document:




Of particular interest is that when either is printed - they print exactly as they look on-screen, complete with spacing issues.


Also notice that the "Bold" doesn't appear as "bold" in the Word document, but spacing is much better. 


Any suggestions what might be the issue?
