Fonts not recognised in Word 2011

Microsoft Word for mac 2011 - macintosh
November 4, 2012 at 03:06:45
Specs: Macintosh OSX 10.8.2, 2x2.4 GHz Quad Core Intel Xenon
Word 2011 for Mac refuses to 'see' some Fonts.

System, Mac Pro Aug 2010, 8 Gig Memory, Mountain Lion.
Fully updated.

The fonts are there in my Font Book, but Word 2011 for Mac refuses to list them in its font list. Word 2004 DID list them, but of course it won't run on Mountain Lion.
Fonts involved include Amaze and CommercialScript3.

I have tried resolving conflicts and other suggestions, but I cannot find the Font Cache in Word to delete it, nor can I find Normal.dotm, the pathway to the file(s) seems to be broken.
These all could be linked of course, one problem appearing in several places.

Any help would be appreciated.

I am wondering if there is a more fundamental fault causing my problems.

The officeformachelp page tells me the pathway to the fonts is
But there is no Microsoft folder in Fonts.

There IS a Microsoft folder containing 151 fonts two levels down in another font folder called 'Fonts Removed'.
A third folder, 'Fonts Disabled' contains 16 fonts.

As basically I don't know what I'm doing, I am unwilling to progress further, once the instructions no longer match my system. I do not want to do something that might cause damage.

Any ideas?
Is the missing Microsoft Folder a clue to something more fundamental being wrong?

I lost my Internet Connection at the weekend, only just got it back today.
I logged in hoping for further replies/suggestions, but there were none.
Thank you to those people who tried to help.
Sadly, my problem persists, certain Fonts, eg Amaze, although they are present on my computer, Word for Mac 2011 cannot see them and will not use them, nor does it list them in the drop down selection box.
