Question Font Size Issue

I have the International Kindle 2 and I love it. However, I noticed that in some ebooks the font in some subheads is not consistent when the font is set at the default size (3rd from left under Menu). This includes the New Oxford American Dictionary included with the device. I have not installed any hacks and have version 2.3 installed currently. I have included an image demonstrating the issue. The words should show up as "piddling" and "piddock". I do not appear to have any issues with any other font sizes. Anyone else have this issue? Thanks!

I just looked up both words in my copy of the dictionary and did not have the issue you are having (and I'm using a font hack).

I suggest a reset. From the home screen click menu > settings > menu > reset.

If that doesn't help you may need to contact Amazon for assistance.

Thanks. I also noticed the "Restart" as well as an option called "Restore Factory Settings", which I think you were referring to. I tried the former, as I did not want to wipe my Kindle just yet. It appears this has fixed the issue. The fonts are displaying properly now. Thanks again!

Great! You're right, it was the "restart" not the "reset" that I was referring to.
