I am suddenly experiencing problems with my menu. The page names appear as small numbers all bunched up together, both in iWeb and when posted. However, they change back to Halvetica when I point to them. I have tried reinstalling, deleting preferences, rebooting, nothing seems to work. I have also noticed the same problem on some Mac web pages and in my e-mail.
I would really appreciate any help from you cleaver Mac users, thanks!

    I think it is best if you do a "Publish ALL to .Mac". This will tell iWeb to upload all the files to your site from start to finish. I think what has happened is that some of your menu graphics have gotten corrupted for some reason. It happens every now and then. Anyways, the "Publish All to .Mac" ultimately should solve the issue.

    If you want, you can empty your browser cache first to see if this simple maneuver could also solve your issue. In Safari, look under the Safari menu and select "Empty Cache..." Then reload your page.

    Any ideas? I
    have recently installed Dreamweaver and wonder if
    there is any connection.


    Helvetica Fractions is incompatible with many Apple OS X apps and does need to be removed from your machine, because it often replaces Helvetica. It may be that Dreamweaver installs it, I don't know.

    I am having the same issue - iWeb wants to display my navigation in Helvetica Fractions and says it's missing when I start up iWeb. When I continue it substitutes a font. I think this is causing issues with my nav looking diffrent on a few pages.

    Did deleting the fractions font help you?

    I am having the same problem. In fact, I purchased Helvetica Fractions and installed it so I would stop getting the message. But I still get fractions substituting for the navigation menu.

    I even reinstalled iWeb. I wish someone from Apple would jump in here and help us figure it out!
