I am running Tiger 10.4.11 and it has 33 fonts on System/Library/Fonts and i can't launch any Office app from safe mode, only Entourage.

That update won't work as it is for S.Leopard but I'll try Font Finagler and that Terminal trick tomorrow (is late at night here in Brazil).

If nothing else works, I'll try to archive and install Tiger again...
Thanks!
