    Eek! I don't have a clue what I did, but suddenly as I surf MacRumors (and any other site), my font in Safari has changed! It looks awful too, so if someone could tell me what the default fonts for Safari are, that would be great. Right now they're set to Times 16 and Courier 13, respectfully in the Safari preferences. If they are at default, would someone mind suggesting something? I'm running 10.3.4, and Safari, oh, I think I see the problem. Safari 1.3 (Developer). Well, if anyone has suggestions, that would be great. Thanks.

    I don't know about Safari 1.3 (Developer), but have you installed Microsoft Office 2004 (or the demo) recently? If I remember correctly, installing Office 2004 adds quite a few duplicate fonts into your system that are slightly different than their original OS X counterparts. Deactivating the offending fonts in FontBook should clear that up for you.

    I have it installed from about two months ago. I'll check that out. Re-installing Mac OS X worked, but right now I don't have Office in the system, so I'll see if something changes when I install Office 2004.
