    I think that's caused by changing the default encoding set for web sites (which results in a different set of fonts used) or you've done something to your system language prefs (see the International Prefs).

    That happens on my G5 (dual 2 gig running 10.3) at work as well! It's not one of those life threatening things, just annoying so it's hard to dedicate time to resolving it when you've got deadlines...

    It's only ever happened in Safari and Adium. It's definitely a font issue, I've tried changing the default fonts but that doesn't seems to work.

    In Adium I ask the people (mostly on PC) I'm chatting with to change the font from their end and it resolves the issue.

    I don't have this problem at home at all (350MHz slot load iMac running 10.3.5).

    Any ideas or fixes would be much appreciated



    Insert witty comment here.

    See, you can trust me.
