I found a similiar effect when I "edited" my reservoir of fonts in
Mac OS X with Font Book. I deactivated a few non-Latin fonts and I
think I also installed a few new ones. In OmniWeb 5.9.1 when I opened
new pages Latin characters were missing, sometimes just a few,
sometimes almost all.
Safari, which is also WebKit based, did not show the same – maybe
launched too late. Other applications behaved well. So it seemed not
to be a fonts cache issue, at least not system-wide because all other
applications that kept running behaved well. When I re-launched
OmniWeb it was OK again ... could it has a simple private font cache
(and I remember a similiar incident a year or longer ago, but I don't
recall whether I was "font editing" then too)
Mac OS X 10.4.11, Tiger, PPC.
By filing this bug report you have challenged the honor of my family.
Prepare to die!
