Safari problems: letter overlapping

I've noticed the past couple days that sometimes one or more letters in safari will overlap each other. It's kind of annoying, but not happening enough to make it unusable. Is anyone else having this trouble?"Give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others"

This is caused by a font conflict. As I understand it, there are a couple things you can do:
1. One of the M-F Mods recommended downloading FontNuke and running it. It clears your font caches which may have become corrupted. I have not tried this personally, but from what I understand, it is pretty simple to use.
2. Different applications sometimes call different fonts by the same name. You could have two different fonts, that are both assigned the same name. Safari doesn't know which one to use. Use spotlight to find the FontBook application on your Mac. Open it and you will find a list of all the fonts you have installed. Ones with conflicts will have a dot next to them. Select these one at a time and Edit > Resolve Duplicates until they are all resolved.
If this still doesn't work, you can also disable the font in question. When Safari can't find it, it will substitute a similar one automatically. Most likely the replacement font will not have the same conflict.

You can also use main menu to clear the font caches, and it does many more maintenance tasks
