I've had an annoyance for a while when visiting websites in Chrome that use the Palatino font: lowercase
z don't show at all, and lowercase
x shows as a double quote (
"). I just tried installing Firefox, and it does the same. Safari, however, renders the font correctly.
Chrome's rendered fonts utility shows that the font is from a local file. I've tried using the
atsutil utility to delete the font cache with no success. Font Book shows the font correctly, and applications like TextEdit can use it with no issues.
I've had this problem for several years, at least back to El Capitan (I'm on Catalina 10.15.2). It's been a low-level annoyance all this time. I'd like to fix it, but have no idea why only Chrome and Firefox would have the problem in the first place.
How do I resolve this?
