L100 Text printing thin

I have a user with Civil3D and he has an odd problem. He has several text objects on several layers that all are assigned the "L100" text style. We use a CTB still and when he prints leaders and other objects on the same layer and same color are normal, but the text itself (mtext) is much thinner.

 

I checked the mtext to make sure it was set to "by layer" and everythign seems fine. I then changed the text to "L" style and they immediatly got darker on the screen and now print just fine. When I look at "style" L100 and "L" appear to be indentical.

 

Any idea what the issue is here?

L uses simplex.shx and L100 is calling a trutype simplex
