    Run Repair Permissions within Utilities and see if that improves things. If not download a program called Main Menu and Clean Fonts Caches:-

    First of all, thank you for the replies.

    Now, because Safari left me down,
    I downloaded firefox, installed it, and used it.

    Now when I use Safari again, to check if it's still messy,
    it's seems to have disappeared...

    This is both good and bad.
    The good thing: offcourse, it's gone.
    The bad thing: still don't know what was the cause, and hope it won't affect other programs I'm using...

    I'm using Linotype Font Explorer for my fonts.
    And I did not change any fonts used in Safari.

    I don't know which version of Linotype Font Explorer you're using, but the current one on their website is 1.1 which is from August 2006. According to their system requirements it should be compatible with Leopard.

    If you continue to have weird font problems on and off, I suggest you uninstall Linotype to see if the errors go away.
