    Missing (but not really) fonts

    Internet Explorer 5.5 sp1.
    My hospital has just moved to Netscape Messenger Express email which is accessed via a browser. In my case (but no-one else's apparently!) the various drop down menus for option boxes show little squares instead of letters. That is usually a sign that a font is missing BUT if I hit refresh the text appears as if by magic![img]/w3timages/icons/shocked.gif[/img]

    Any help out there?

    You can try deleting ttfcache in the windows directory, and then rebooting. It could do the trick.[img]/w3timages/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Nice thought, but doesn't work. Thanks for trying. Did I mention that I'm using Windows 95?

    It's OK, In case anyone's still interested... I've fixed it myself[img]/w3timages/icons/yep.gif[/img] It was an encoding thing. A right-click on the desktop pops up a menu with (among other things) Encoding. Deselecting autoselect fixed my problem. But why?[img]/w3timages/icons/hairy.gif[/img]
