Annotation Feature Class Rendering Problems in ArcGIS 10

I am using an annotation feature class last updated in ArcInfo ver 9.x.  When I use this feature class in ArcGIS 9.x, no problem.  The annotations conform to the alignment splines and they print perfectly.  However, when used in ArcGIS 10, many (but not all) of the annotations are rotated off-axis.  Thus, they appear to be aligned in different directions.  This problem exists outside a geodatabase.

The annotation files were originally created several ArcInfo versions ago and have worked perfectly through each new release, at least until Version 10.

Any thoughts?
