Hi David,

has you Mathematica 3.0 still installed ? You should look
to the fonts directory of Windows. Mathematica may install
a second copy of some of the math fonts "Math1 Bold" instead
"Math1-Bold". I have had similar problems until I removed my
Mathematica 3.0 and the old Trurtype fonts. Don't ask me why.
