    Weird font - pls help
    Hi,
    My Mac seems is being taken over by a weird 'fraction' font. At first it just affected my dashboard application which I never use, but now it is appearing when I try to view pages on wikipedia and some other sites. It also occurs if I try to copy text from the Net in the body of an email using Mail.
    Any ideas??
    I've attached a couple of screen shots.

    Download Onyx or MainMenu and clean out the font caches, restart and that should solve the problem

    Thanks for your help. I downloaded Main Menu and cleaned the font cache as well as doing a deep clean on the system cache. It hasn't worked. Any other suggestions or would Onyx have been better?

    It may be a font conflict then. Have you downloaded and installed any odd fonts lately. You might try deactivating some fonts in fontbook to see if that clash goes away

    If you use a lot of fonts on your mac, we can give some further advice
