    Default OS 10.4 - Help with Java in Yahoo! Games - Fonts Unreadable?

    Hello all. I just got a MacBook Pro, running OS 10.4.9, and am having a small problem. I enjoy playing hearts on Yahoo! Games using Safari as my Browser, but I cannot see the text. It is very small and scrunched. Yahoo! Games uses Java. When I look at the Java Console, I get this:

    Warning: the font "Times" is not available, so "Lucida Bright" has been substituted, but may have unexpected appearance or behavor. Re-enable the "Times" font to remove this warning.
    Warning: the font "Courier" is not available, so "Lucida Sans Typewriter" has been substituted, but may have unexpected appearance or behavor. Re-enable the "Courier" font to remove this warning.
    Java Plug-in 1.5.0
    Using JRE version 1.5.0_07 Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM
    User home directory = /Users/acleme1

    Any ideas on how I can fix this? Thanks so much for any help you can give. Kind regards, ac.

    Check this document, for adding new fonts to your JRE. It seems that Yahoo used "Times" font which is installed on windows by default but not in OS 10.4.9. You will need the font file and copy it to jre/lib/font directory. Then at least restart browser (System restart might be needed).

    Let us know the result.
