Description of Font Finagler 1.0

Font Finagler... If you're having problems on your system with text appearing "garbled", it could be caused by corrupt font cache files. What appears to be happening is that incorrect or corrupted encoding vector information is being used when mapping the character codes as input by your keyboard to the glyphs they represent in the problematic font. You can run Font Cache Cleaner to purge these cache files in an attempt to restore normal behavior. If you use Font Cache Cleaner but the problem remains, then it could be caused by a font conflict or by a corrupt font. Try removing fonts to isolate the problematic fonts that are causing this behavior.
WHAT'S NEW
Version 1.0:
Features:
Built as a Universal Binary to run natively on both PowerPC Macs (G3,G4, G5) and Intel Macs.
Adds support for Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard).
Adds support for cleaning the font cache files of Adobe, QuarkXPress, and Microsoft applications. The method Font Finagler uses to search for these additional files is both incredibly fast and thorough. Font Finagler can often find Up to twice the number of font cache files as other applications: potentially thousands of files in seconds. Try a competing application first, and then use Font Finagler to see what files their application missed.
When cleaning the OS X font cache files, Font Finagler now examines your ~/Library/FontCollections/ folder for any corrupt font collection files and will include these in a clean if needed. Corrupt font collection files can cause Font Book to hang or crash at launch, can cause applications to crash, and can prevent applications from opening the standard Font panel.
Adds the ability to preserve Font Book�s disabled fonts for the current user when cleaning the OS X font cache files (only applies to Mac OS X 10.4.x and later).
Adds the ability to preserve Font Book�s external libraries when cleaning the OS X font cache files (only applies to Mac OS X 10.5.x and later).
