Fonts not installing/displaying correctly

Awhile ago I realised some of my fonts were magically missing from my microsoft word. I tried to re-install the fonts, but encountered problems with some, specifically Gotham. My system can't even read the font file, it appears weird (http://imgur.com/PK5pU) but it still can install.

Word can't read this, which is weird because I've successfully installed it before till now. Other fonts that disappeared work fine (i think) and the fonts work in TextEdit fine.

I have tried clearing font caches with FontDoctor and cleared the Word font cache file as well. Mac still displays everything weird upon installation, but TextEdit displays everything fine.

Help is appreciated, thanks.

Your screen capture of Font Book shows that at least some of the characters are displaying properly. Therefore, your screen capture does not show the problem. It might be much more useful is to give a link to the actual font file. This way, we can test the font to try to replicate your problem and then to remedy it.

Its not the font file. I managed to install it successfully before, and I even unzipped the fonts again from the original package just to be sure. Uninstalled and installed, no luck.
