I suspect that the Linux server doesn't have windows true type fonts installed, therefore it cannot accurately render the fonts received from windows.

Since you don't name the Linux distribution you are using, I can only give a general answer: install windows fonts to your Linux server.

Here is a google search for information about installing windows true type fonts on a Linux system: https://www.google.com/search?q=add+...73.zAA8vqATU64

It may be an encoding problem. If BOM isn't specified, it leaves the space for editors to guess the encoding. What is the encoding shown on Windows?

Encoding, as one of the other posters said. The program you use to view the file interprets the characters differntly than the Windows program.

Is it a simple text file? How do you view it in Linux? Example: If it's a text file using Unicode, the following magic would work:

Code:
LANG=utf-8 cat yourfile
