Calling All Mac Gurus

I've been having a heck of a time with my laptop displaying some websites and other documents in the wrong fonts, like Greek or numbers or just garbled fonts that I don't recognize. I'm on a Mac, was using OS X 10.1

I've upgraded to 10.3, I uninstalled then reinstalled Office X, I've run Font Finagler and Deep Six, I've used Font Book to disable duplicate fonts, I don't know what else to do.

The websites are annoying, though Revland is no longer displaying as Greek the sites I Googled for information on font display problems with OS X do. Ug. The thing that's pissing me off at the moment, though, is Address Book is displaying all my contact information as numbers. When I cut and paste the information into a different program (like cutting it into an Entourage message) what displayed as numbers in Address Book appears correctly as the name or address of the person.

Hell, just trying to do an HTML preview of this very post in iJournal turns the whole entry to Greek, when it shows up perfectly clearly when I'm typing, no problem.

Anyone know what the hell is going on with my Mac? Or, more importantly, what to do to fix it??
