   Hmmm. The best suggestion I can think of is maybe the font files 
themselves got corrupted somewhere along the way, in which case you should trash the 
fonts and reinstall fresh copies. Failing that, there's always the generic Mac 
troubleshooting protocol, namely "trash the relevant preference files (Finder 
prefs, General Controls prefs, and Rev prefs, in this case), rebuild the 
desktop, and zap the PRAM".
   If neither of those options help, well, you got me...
