Font problems can arise from widely different, platform specific
problems,  so it is not really possible to give you a conclusive answer
to your query.

If you suspect that it may be a font configuration problem, there are
several webpages at Wolfram Research's Technical Support website that
may be worth reviewing.  The relevant URL is:

One other aspect you may want to check is the default input format type,
which is set via the front end menu command sequence

	Cell -> Default Input Format Type -> <format type>

If this is set to InputForm, you will not be able to enter 
two-dimensional typeset information.  Setting the value to 
StandardForm will restore the ability to use two-dimensional syntax.

If you find that this topics addressed on this page are not applicable
to your situation, you may want to post a more precise description of
the problem your encountering.
