Confluence Edit page - macros display strange characters Edited

Since upgrading to Confluence 6.4.1, when edit a page with various types of macros, the text in the macro block are illegible characters that describe the macro.

This is an example of the Table of Contents macro as displayed in the Edit page.

I ended up having to 

> sudo yum groupinstall fonts

sudo fc-cache -f -v

Awesome, that solved it!  Updating the fonts was the ticket!

Thank you, Colin!!

Didn't help in my case even after confluence restart/

Same for me, did the above mentioned guide + groupinstall fonts, nothing seems to have changed.

This worked for me, thanks.
