IE 6 Font issue

I have a handful of machines (xp & 2003 server) that have no problem using the following site:
http://www.gujaratilexicon.com/index.php?action=idmdictionary

Unfortunately, the majority of my machines are off of builds that can't seem to use the site properly.  Instead of the Gujarati font, I see spaces.  I can set the font in the Language Bar, it doesn't seem to matter.  Additionally, If I switch over to Gujarati in MS Word (07) everything types up just fine.

I've compared Java RTSE versions (one 2003 server without Java installed runs the site just fine...).

Any ideas what IE switches may be blanking out the font in the browser?

-Additional Info:  If I set the font to Gujarati and then try to type in this 'body' box on the Experts-Exchange for, I get the same problem, but in reverse - if you see what I mean.

Thanks so much for your response

Ok, I actually figured it out:

Go to Tools/Internet Options/Fonts...
Select the Language from the first drop-down
Specify the font to use.

That took care of it...

Now... how do I go about making that a default for all users??  Through the default user profile?  Group Policy? .reg file or .bat?

I'll leave the question open & award for that...

THANKS!!
