Topic: PDF from QuarkXPress with Garbled Text on Windows 2000

I have a real strange one here. I use QuarkXPress 6.5 for layout and place EPS files created with Illustrator 10 within these report documents. I then export to PDF from QuarkXPress to create PDFs to distribute to clients. A few of our clients have problems with garbled text in these PDFs, on the screen and when printing. The latest user to have the issue is using Windows 2000. The problem comes and goes. I would assume there is some sort of font conflict going on, but this does not occur on 99% of machines that use these PDFs. It is rare and fairly transitory, but those who have the problem can almost always recreate it with a bit of jumping around in the PDFs. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Why eBooks and mobile devices don't (yet) pose an existential threat to the PDF

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
