    Hi==
    I installed 300 fonts on my MBP and now all my web fonts are so messed up I can barely make out what some websites say-- is there a way to fix this or just dump the fonts and re-install them?
    Why is this happening? Thank you===
    Dave

    I figured out the problem!

    There was a font in Times that was producing the strange looking characters. I shut off that particular times font. I also went into Firefox and changed the default font from Times to Myriad. Everything looks ten times better now! :)

    Use the Apple's Font Book.app and validate all your fonts, disabling those that fail.

    Then download something like FontNuke and nuke the font caches.
