I haven't transferred Quark files between OSes so I can't
be sure, but there's a good change that that's a fonts issue
more than a Quark issue and would happen with any doc.
There are often font issues between Mac and PC.

1. Macs use Zapf Dingbats and Windows has Wingdings/
Webdings, and they don't map exactly.

2. Macs and Windows fonts use different character codes.
Evil, evil, evil.
