That's what happens under Windows with Acrobat, but not with Sumatra, 
where it seems to be displayed correctly. So it's more likely to be a 
problem with readers rather than OS.
I must say that Acrobat is supposed to be the most pdf-compliant reader. 
You probably know the reason why.

Nice document, by the way. I hope you know iTeX was a joke?
