I have had font problems of the sort that you described (which is  
separate from the printing bug I mailed about some week ago). I am  
running Leopard. I have Word 2008, which is not running under Rosetta,  
right? (Besides, I never use Equation Editor.)  Could it be that it is  
Illustrator that causes the problem? I am running Illustrator CS3  
which is "universal" or whatever it's called. Nevertheless, the  
problem seem to appear when I am using Illustrator. I  running Texshop  
2.14, so perhaps I should upgrade?
