I wonder how many people see this bug in Version 6.0.2? (I'm on 32-bit
Windows Vista.)

Type (or paste in from the Special Characters Script palette):


and evaluate. Everything should be all right. Then select the output cell
and use Menu, Format, Face, Bold to change the FontWeight to "Bold". The
output cell will go blank and you will obtain a Messages Window with the
error: INTERNAL SELF-TEST ERROR: NoteFont2|c|1783.

Alternatively, start a Section head and type: This section heading contains
a Script \[ScriptCapitalF].
Again you will obtain an error message and the Script F will not display.

This happens for all Bold Script characters, but it does not happen for Bold
Greek, Gothic or DoubleStruck.

This problem did not occur prior to Version 6.0.2.


I can't reproduce either of these two "features" on XP SP3
