BlueBasic - an amino acid colored font

Has anyone tried using these fonts? I have tried using them in MS Word 5.1a and it causes 
my system to crash. Also, clicking on some of the BlueBasic fonts within the font 
suitcases has caused type 11 errors. I'm running 7.5.3 on a PowerMac 7600/120 32 Mb RAM.
Any suggestions?
