What fonts did you use in the UNIX template? If you used fonts like Lucida,
you're probably out of luck (although you can map it to a font of your choice
instead of the one
Frame chooses for you, most likely Times). If you're designing documents for
cross-platform compatibility, your best bet is to stick with Helvetica, Times,
and Courier,
which are all Windows fonts and should be installed on every PC.

Good luck,

I speak for myself -- probably too often.
