Font issue in Google Chrome.

Hello, I am having this font issue in Google Chrome, the font shows up like this on some websites:

I think it is because of some corrupt font, but I don't know the real problem.
I would be glad if you guys could help.
Thanks in advance.

I don't see anything. The image goes to a black screen with a tiny blue dot in the middle. Is that what you meant to show?

Ah yes. You're using GDIPP? You need to exclude Chrome from the process, or use a stylish. Google fixed this issue in the Beta and Dev builds, and the fix will be in the next stable release. Go to the settings XML file in the GDIPP programs file, and add "<process>chrome\.exe</process>" to the exclude process.

Here are some links of interest:

Chrome Stable 14.0.835.163 font issues.

Firefox 3.5 - No text-shadow on websites - userstyles.org

Well for all intents the fix was for, it's now mute. Google just released the stable version of 16. You shouldn't need any "fix" for the fonts now, so you could either undo what you did, or just leave it, as it shouldn't hurt anything by staying modified.
