    I am experiencing font corruption issues when working in Word 2008. The text gets blurred and overlapped onto other text. I attached a screenshot of what is happening.

    Any help would be appreciated. I ran FontBook and it reported caution signs around some of the MS fonts, but no critical errors. Not sure how to proceed going forward.

    Thanks.

    I personnally experience ugly typesetting in powerpoint 2004, but still did not tackle seriously the issue... sorry if it is off-topic.

    Anyway, font management in Mac OS X deserves some systematic attention if you run into troubles.

    I've found Office 2008 to be very grumpy running on my MBP. Given your situation, I'd reinstall it, as said above. Something may have just gotten corrupted somewhere.

    If you don't need the fonts that are being cautioned, disable them.

    As far as the corrupted font display try www.versiontracker.com and download FontNuke or some other font cache cleaner.
