Is this happening in a particular browser, or is it a cross browser problem? How about on different accounts?

Did you first notice it after updating to 10.4.8?

Wait -- so you're saying the font problem happens in multiple applications -- like Safari and Word? Or just in web browsers like Safari, Firefox or Camino? Or just in one specific program?

I don't have a good, clean answer for you, though I'm sure someone else on the boards can do more than I can.

If I were you, the first thing I would do would be to setup a new account and see if the same font problems exist there. If so, this would suggest a larger system problem.

You might also want to consider cleaning out the font cache in your primary login by downloading a tool like TinkerTool System (http://www.versiontracker.com/dyn/moreinfo/macosx/21156).
