I've just upgraded to Mountain Lion (OSX.8.x) and It appears the font being used on this forum is being substituted. I need to know what font is used so I can go back into Time Machine and get it.  OSX.8.1 FontBook is much tougher on fonts.  and puts many in Trash.  You have to put a few back.

Not any of the well tried fonts specially created for screen reading, but one of their own. I forgot which because this is a battle I lost completely very long ago, and therefore I am no longer interested.

Don't worry, surely someone who knows will answer shortly.

I figured it out myself. I opened fonts and checked. For some reason Varanda a Microsoft licensed Font I seemed to have remebered for some reason was chosen.

Turns out three of the four variations were missing.  I went into time machine and checked all four variations and had time machine replace them.

Now the Forums appears as they should.

I will not mark my on answer as  the answer. Someone else will have to do that.

Let's just call the Thread Finished.

Phillip,

Somehow, I think that your pet "Sea Monkeys" are messing with your fonts, and with your mind...

At least you got it handled, and good luck,

Do you mean Verdana?

I thought Adobe was using their own "Adobe Clean" font.  ??

Yes I misspelled the name. Fonts not only affect Fonts in SeaMonkey, but any application that uses it.  Its Mountain Lion (OSX.8.x) that messes with your fonts.

The first time I opened Fontbook after I installed Mountain Lion (OSX.8.x) the was a Ton of fonts in the Trash I don't know whether updated version were installed or found duplicates. So I removed them made zip archive of all of thenm as a group and saved them.

They say they are but when veranda was missing,  the subtitued version looks worse than terible. So it appears That they are doing a Fake out. They can't say they use it unless they pay microsoft a cut.  And Veranda has been a MS font both for Mac and PC since atleast Office 95 and Office 42 for Mac (put out same year).

Phillip,

For some reason Varanda...

Not sure about fonts, but there IS a Veranda magazine: http://www.veranda.com/

But, I think that Station_Two is correct, that you meant Verdana, but then there ARE a lot of fonts out there.
