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.
