fonts all screwy!

we have a case where every few letters of every word shows up in a different font. There is only one defined text style in the drawing, and some of the letters are in it then some are in arial. I notice a bunch of code in the "contents" properties box, which i am certain is causing the change, but what is causing the seemingly spontaneous insertion of this second font? I know we used a drawing from an outside source earlier in the day that is known to have font issues, but now it is affecting (infecting) even new drawings...

HELP!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was able to correct it with autolisp STRIPMTEXT.lsp

Have you  installed Service Pack for your Autocad?

i believe everyone here is up to date on the service pack, but i will check that for this user (i lead the horses to water via downloading it, but can't make 'em drink)

 

thanks for your quick solution, he'll be very happy. any idea the culprit? how to avoid it in the future? wish i could understand exactly what it was that happened (my analytical nature)... will try your fix, can't thank you enough.
