Topic: Normal text turns out randomly bold in PDF

We have Quark 7.2 and Acrobat 5.0 on Windows XP. We've used this workflow for a long time so we usually know what we're doing.

The job we're on right now has us baffled. We have an 80-page file in Quark. When we create the PDF, some paragraphs are turning out bold instead of normal text. We can't find anything different about these paragraphs in the Quark file - all the formatting is the same - so the problem must be somewhere in the conversion to PDF.

Does anyone know what this is, or how we can try to troubleshoot it?
