Problem with fonts
Posted on 2002-03-27
Lately I have been having a problem with what seems to be a corrupted font file, although it could be much worse.
From time to time, if I am working in a text editor, such as notepad or a notepad replacement, the screen will show odd looking characters instead of the text I am typing, then totally lock up. It has done this to me while in HTML editing mode in MS FrontPage 2000.
In fact, it has done this in 3 seperate programs made by 3 different companies, which tells me the problem is not program-specific.
What I am asking is that IF it is a font problem, what is the default font used in these kinds of displays? Courier?
If it is not the font, what else could it be?
