    OS X, MS Office, or both?
    I just upgraded an older G5 to OS X Leopard, and upgraded MS Ofc 2004 to 2008. Now I cannot get the fonts to display properly in Entourage or Word. I can select Times New Roman, but I know it's not Times New Roman. It does this for some very basic fonts (i.e. Arial, etc.).

    Is this an issue with OS X or with MS or both? Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make the fonts appear (and print) like they are supposed to?

    Any suggestions is greatly appreaciated

    Check the Font Book application for errors (there's a validate command there somewhere in the file menu I believe...)
    Select all fonts > Validate and let it fix any errors.

    Ummm... I forgot to mention that I'm a total noob when it comes to Macs. Is the Font Book in the Applications folder or the Utilities folder? Maybe I should be asking, Where can I find the Font Book?
