    I have a rather annoying problem with iTunes and o clue how to fix it... :confused:

    After trying to import a xml library file, my iTunes started displaying everything (except the menu bar on the top of the screen) in what looks like a mix of Arabic characters and simple nonsense - song information, playlist names, categories... I have attached a screenshot of the whole mess.
    Bottom line: I can't really listen to any music because I can't tell any songs. :mad: This is just iTunes, any other iLife app works just fine.

    I have tried reinstalling iTunes but that didn't fix the problem. There's been a similar issue mentioned already ( a while ago. I have installed new fonts as well but iTunes continued to work fine for several days afterwards until the fatal xml importing attempt.

    Any help or advice wold be greatly appreciated.

    That actually looks like Hebrew to me.

    Anyways, I think deleting font caches and maybe getting a new copy of the XML file should work.
