    Certain websites and many OS X applications started displaying this gibberish and I have no idea how to fix it. Any ideas? For instance, there are some sites that will display this gibberish in Safari, but Firefox displays it fine. :dunno:

    hmm, the only thing i can think is that the website uses a font that is not native to mac?

    I'm sure it's the browser. The main issue is that it is happening in applications as well as online. So address book is doing it, OSX Mail, pages, etc.

    Are you using some type of font manager? Like Suitcase or Font Reserve?

    The system will freak out sometimes when forced to recognize the same named font. In any case, you're gonna need to clean out your font cache.
