Fonts in graphics programs going haywire since upgrade to ND6 and Win2k Pro

I have two users that work with graphics programs like Adobe Photoshop a great deal. We upgraded them to Lotus Notes 6 on Windows 2000 Pro, and ever since their fonts have been going crazy inside of Notes and with Windows 2000. Is there a compatibility issue or any other problems that you know of?
It's not necessarily a compatibility issue, but Notes cannot handle the number of fonts that are usually available to graphic design programs. Normally Notes can handle about 250 fonts. If more are installed, then it grabs the first 250 it can find for usage. This can sometimes lead to fonts and messages not rendering properly. The only cure is to remove some fonts.
