I found a similiar effect when I "edited" my reservoir of fonts in  
Mac OS X with Font Book. I deactivated a few non-Latin fonts and I  
think I also installed a few new ones. In OmniWeb 5.9.1 when I opened  
new pages Latin characters were missing, sometimes just a few,  
sometimes almost all.

Safari, which is also WebKit based, did not show the same – maybe  
launched too late. Other applications behaved well. So it seemed not  
to be a fonts cache issue, at least not system-wide because all other  
applications that kept running behaved well. When I re-launched  
OmniWeb it was OK again ... could it has a simple private font cache  
(and I remember a similiar incident a year or longer ago, but I don't  
recall whether I was "font editing" then too)

Mac OS X 10.4.11, Tiger, PPC.
