Sometimes when I'm browsing sites online, the text will turn into gibberish.
An example of the gibberish is: Fcvkpi"(Rgtuqpcnu Gpvgtavckpogpv
basically, it seems to have problems reading text sometimes... does anyone know whats up? I've never had this problem when using Safari on my G5.

Yes, I was wondering this too. I initially corrected the problem I was having by changing Safari's default font (from whatever it was to Apple LiGothic, one of my favorite fonts). I still see the scrambled text occasionally though.

Have you tried making adjustments in the preferences appearances?

i tried making font adjustments in Safari preferences and Appearance settings and nothing worked. Even asked the guy at the Apple store genius bar and they don't know whats up.

Ok, now I figured out a good way to fix this. Whenever I see a scrambled font, I copy and paste it into a program where I can easily identify it. I use Adobe InDesign 2.0. Once I know the exact font it is, I open Font Book and disable it. I've done it twice and haven't seen the problem since.
