Joe: A PICT is simply a recording of Quickdraw commands, which get executed when you open a picture. The text replay commands seem to default to Geneva when a certain font is not available. Maybe your Chicago font in system 8.6 is a different version of the font than the one you have on your older system, thus causing the default to Geneva. (Just a guess). Or maybe Chicago is defined as a system font on your newer system and some other font is your system font on your older system. When I had an "About" box with a fancy font, I had to take a screen shot of the entire box because chances would be that people wouldn't have this font on their system. You may have to do something similar.
