    Font Issues on Power Mac
    hey folks...

    i have a little font issue with my powermac when it is in safari...basically my problem is this: (see attachment)

    the font does not change no matter what setting i put it on...and it is this really small system like font for most links and a lot of the text that is displayed on my computer

    i have attempted to change most fonts on my system but nothing really helps this out much

    TIA

    in safari preferences, have you changed the fonts? they should be 1st font=helvetica 16, 2nd = helvetica 13. what are you using to manage fonts, if anything?

    hmm....the first font was times and the second was currier, i changed them, closed safari, and still does not display correctly.

    im using fontbook2 to manage fonts...i dont have that many fonts, but i am kind of looking for a better aplication to manage them

    how many extra fonts do you have installed? some font is obviously causing problems. I recommend suitcase for font management.

    Validate the fonts in font book and get rid of the duplicates first.
    Hopefully it's something simple.

    Backup your Safari pref then delete the one in ~/Library/Preferences

    See if that helps.

    Also loose the skin and skin pref if there is one.
