[Athen] Word to PDF includes Word codes

Has anyone encountered this before? I'm printing from Word 2003 to PDF. I've
done this many many times, but today for the first time the PDF contains
Word codes instead of text in places like page numbers and tables of
contents. There's also a summary page added to the end of the PDF document -
that too is new. It's doing this in all my documents, not just one.

This seems to be an Acrobat Distiller issue because if I print to PDF
through the File > Print menu, bypassing the Adobe PDFMaker plug-in, I get
the same result. The new summary page tacked onto the end of the document
makes me think this is a setting rather than a bug, but I can't find it. I
even tried reinstalling Adobe Acrobat Professional 8, but the problem

Any hunches?
