    I did a fresh install of OS X to slim down things. I deselected all the
    extra language support when installing. But I still see some Eastern
    looking fonts in menus:

    At least some of those are in /System/Library/Fonts. How do I get
    rid of them please? And why are they still there after taking such
    care not to install extra language support?

    I notice the presence of this:


    Thinking about it, I guess there's an outside chance I did accidentally
    select Asian language support, but I think that's very unlikely. I didn't
    select individual twigs, so to speak. No, I cut off extra language support
    at the branch root :)

    Open Font Book, select the individual font of font group you do not want , go to edit/disable.

    Ok, thanks. Is that something I would have to do per account,
    or is the effect global?
