On this Mac every error message for any application displays like those in the two pictures. Any suggestions? Finding good information while googling 'corrupt error message' is hard.

Mac OS X v10.6 "Snow Leopard"
I'm not sure what other information would be useful.

It was probably hard to find info because that's the first time I've seen such a thing!!!

The first thing to try when you suspect something is corrupt is to repair the hard drive while booted from some other drive - your install DVD is designed to be used for this:
Resolve startup issues and perform disk maintenance with Disk Utility and fsck
(go down to the part Try Disk Utility)

Let us know the result.

Looks more like a font problem. Try this first: jamapi.com :: FontNuke - A FREE tool for removing font cache files on Mac OS X

Ya, that's good idea, too. A Safe Boot also clears font caches (see my link above).
