Been installing my old fonts and the like to Font Book on Mountain Lion but I seem to be running into a small issue as I install.


Besides the fact that I'm getting the 'A-image' for some of the fonts, a fair few of the fonts themselves also seem to be showing up in what looks to be some sort of alternate language? 


I uploaded a few examples here as well to help explain the problem I'm running into.


This is actually a fairly new computer, only a few days old, so there's hasn't been a lot that I've done that I could assume would be doing this.


Any help or suggestions would be great, thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide!

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)

    The first and third fonts are showing their Hebrew characters as a sample, the second one is showing its Thai characters.  The 4th one is showing a character from the Apple Last Resort Font, which indicates a problem accessing the proper character.


    I don't know why Fontbook does this, but I haven't seen any reports so far that it affects the usability of the fonts in question in any way.   Does it for you?

    Hi Tom.


    It doesn't seem to affect using them, from what I can find. Perhaps this is just a feature for Mountain Lion that never appeared in Lion before.


    Thanks for the helpful information, I really appreciate it!
