    On of the teachers at my school is having a problem on her mac. Its an iMac. When she prints, just certain things, the printer prints symbols instead of some of the words. The whole page isnt like that, just some headings and things. Any ideas?

    Could be a print driver issue. Could be malformed or slightly corrupted image files. I see this issue on all operating systems, so likely isn't a Mac problem per se, but others here may have some tips.

    Would that one program be Microsoft Word/PowerPoint? <shakes fist in air in MS general direction>

    That is indeed a decent possibility. You may be able to locate the font online somewhere. Use Font Book to install it once located if you go that route.

    ok- i have another question about fonts. and totally confused about it

    and this is a totally different teacher.

    on each computer in our school, every person is able to log in to each computer (all log in names are available upon start up). One of our teachers has weird characters come up when she is logged in, no matter which computer she is on. When I am logged in on the same computer, it is fine. When she logs in, some websites show crazy symbols.

    What about that?
