To reproduce, open test0.html with Viewer and Communicator: look at the line "This is a paragraph with font variations: Bold Arial, Italic Verdana, COURIER, Times New Roman.". The fonts are not the same in the 2 windows.
Another instance of the problem: go to "aol.com" -> all the 'bullet' characters are replaced with 'sygmas'.

Fix checked in. There are still a couple of problems. First if you are using ATSUI the spacing is all messed up since we are not measuring text properly. Second if you are rendering without ATSUI you will get summation characters since we are not doing a conversion between Latin-1 and MacRoman.
*** Bug 2154 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Re-opening as a courtesy, per 1.13.98 Mac OS build. While the bug does appear mostly fixed, "Italic Verdana" is not drawn in italics by Viewer or apprunner, whereas it is drawn in italics by Communicator 4.5. However, this is also the case on Win32 Viewer (1.12.98 build). Is this a known issue, or should I split out a bug report? (and if so, to whom?) Thanks!

I filed a bug against the parser ( rickg? ). If you look at the html you will see that there is a <font face > tag right before the Verdana font face tag which is lacking a </font> closing tag. If you either a) add the </font> tag or b) remove the meaningless <font face> you get italics.
Verified fixed, then. ;) Thanks, David!
