    Since I migrated to my new mac mini yesterday, Safari has been having issues on various websites displaying some text:

    I've been looking round the internets for a solution but have come back empty-handed, so I was hoping the MR community could help me out.

    FWIW:
    Safari 6.0.2 (8536.26.17)
    Mac OS X 10.8.2 (everything up-to-date)

    You appear to have a corrupted font (not sure which one though).

    Try a clean install and restore the software/data manually instead of using migration assistant.

    Fixed.

    Thanks - I should have twigged it was a system font issue.

    I had a corrupt duplicate for a bunch of fonts so using the "look for enabled duplicates..." function, manually weeding out the broken ones and restarting Safari did the trick.
