Why is my entire Internet suddenly showing up in italics?

I restarted my computer last night, and suddenly, many different words all over the Internet are printing in italics. Entire paragraphs. All of my Gmail. It's fairly distracting. I don't know how it started and I have no idea how to get rid of it.

This is effecting both Internet Explorer and Firefox.

Best answer: Uh, what? You didn't you get the memo? We're all using italics now.

OK, seriously, it sounds like your fonts got hosed. When you go into Write or Word and use Arial, are you given style options under the Font menu like bold, italics, etc? Try it out. If that looks hosed, you may have to find Arial somewhere and reinstall it.

I'm just going on the assumption that this is an Arial issue.

Response by poster: rolypolyman: I think you're right! I went into Word, selected Arial, and wasn't giving an option without the bold and italics. That must be it.

The question now is, how do I get Arial back without having to pay for it?
