Safari 4 Bug in Snow Leopard

There appears to be a bug in Safari 4 running on Snow Leopard (MacOS X 10.6.1). Safari does not handle the <pre> tag correctly

The line below should look like this (the letters a-z all lower case):

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy

But instead it looks like this:

abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxy

For some reason various letters don’t show up. If you don’t see a problem then take a look at this screenshot:

Edit: I learned that the problem was that I had multiple versions of the Courier font installed on my computer. I used the Mac application, Font Book to remove the duplicate font and the problem went away.

“If you applied the same amount of devotion to a religious pursuit do you think anyone would call you a religious bum? Probably not. When you consider that surfing really is, more than anything else, a faith and devotion to that faith becomes paramount in your life there’s no such thing as a surf bum.” – Sam George in Riding Giants
