Hi Ross,

Thank you for suggesting this. However, while Yosemite (apparently) allows users
to deactivate system fonts, El Capitan does not. As someone else pointed out,
both the deactivate and remove options are greyed out in Font Book. (Probably in
other font manager programs as well, though I haven't tried any of those.)

I believe you are also the person who suggested taking the machine to a
Certified Apple Technician to recover a system password. This is probably a
great idea; however, I have a bunch of physical limitations that make this a
Huge Journey. Thank you for the suggestion, and I will consider doing so if I
cannot solve the problem some other way. Possibly through the use of GIMP's
fonts.conf elsewhere on this thread, which I will look into.
