My organization uses some very basic sample CAD data in training material for our entry-level users.  Recently we've noticed the CAD text displaying differently for different users.  For some it displays just as it does in AutoCAD, but for others it shows the format tags such as <BOL></BOL>, etc.

Is this a version or service pack issue?  Is it some sort of format/options setting in ArcGIS that affect how the .dwg is read?  Is it something simple we need to change to the source CAD file, or is it on the ArcGIS side?

Attached are the source 'Building_Changes.dwg' (.zip) and some reference .jpg images titled by the version from which they were taken.  The .dwg is v2004.  I haven't had a chance to test 9.3.1 SP2 or 10 SP1 yet.

Thanks for any help/suggestions anyone has.  Please let me know if you need further information.
