    font issue

    Can you open Font Book and under the Edit menu, run Check for Duplicate enabled fonts? That looks like one of the system fonts is missing or corrupt.
    A reinstall of Mavericks should (may) fix it too.
    Another trouble-shooting item, delete the fonts cache, Onyx can do that easily.

    Looks like you got missing fonts.

    I suggest you download and install Pacificist and use it to extract the Fonts folder in the Mavericks installer and reinstall those fonts.
