    Hi,

    I've tried searching on here, and the only post that had a similar problem was: http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=606258

    Occasionally, regardless of the application, I get strange, jumbled characters (sometimes greek letters instead of roman, etc.) for text. Happens in Preview, Safari, Photoshop, MS Word, iTunes, etc. Here are some screen shots (attached).

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Try heading to the system preferences and over to International. Under the language tab there, check to see if English is at the top as the preferred language. If not, click and drag it to the top of the list. Also, check the pull down menu for sorted lists to see if it is set to English.

    Did that -- nothing needed to be changed. English was already the top choice for both. :(
