    wierd font displayed (IE 5.50.4134.0100)

    Some webpages display a wierd font that I do not recognize. I am guessing that I do not have that font available and that is why I get the wierd display. If I copy the wierd words to the clipboard and paste in a txt document they are readable.

    How can I resolve this situation? It occurs on some online database search engines and is most annoying.

    Try:
    Tools > Internet Options > Accessibility
    and select 'Ignore font styles...'

    Plus...!

    Tools > Internet Options > Fonts
    and check you have valid selections.

    (I have 'Latin based', 'Times New Roman' and 'Courier New' which I suspect is the default.)

    Yes, that is what I have checked as well. I'll surf and find a page where the problem occurs and post a URL.

    Sorry... I rechecked and I didn't have IGNORE FONT STYLES checked. When I checked that it works fine.
    So sorry to waste your time and THANKS for fast response and answer! I am thrilled.

    No problem - glad you have it resolved.
    Interesting that I don't have Ignore Font Styles checked but everything looks eminently readable!

    <font color=red>Edited by DaveA to add url code</font color=red>
    Here is a sample page where the "buttons" are labeled with unreadable font and also the window for entering search terms. Sorry for long URL you probably must cut and paste it since it will wrap:
