Need a very extended font

Commonplace academic book fonts that have ascii slots mapped out for "dot-under" consonants?

I need to set up an InDesign project for a book. THe author has Word files that use "Times". On my PC (running XP) his extended characters (many of them being consonants with dots under, like so many of the sanskritic examples) do not show. THey will show if I re-font to Times Extended Roman. But the book must be in a nice academic serif like Minion, Baskerville, Caslon, Goudy, or perhaps Palatino. I have experimented, and I don't see those characters in the glyph list for those fonts. (Unless I have missed something.) Any help about a nice looking serif font, that reacts well in InDesign typesetting, and is like these fonts just mentioned (classic, sharp, etc) will be appreciated. Also... it must be somehow available and able to be distilled by Acrobat.
