Word Doc Sent as Attachment Shows Only Musical Notes (But Shows Text OK in Wordpad)

I saved a Word 2007 document as Word 2003 and sent it to myself at home as an e-mail attachment.  When I try to open it on my home computer (XP Pro, SP 3), which has Word 2003, all I get is a page of musical notes (see attached file).  When I open the file in WordPad, the document's original text is there.  I got onto my work computer, using GoToMyPC, but the same thing happened when I dragged the file onto my home desktop or copied and pasted it onto the desktop.

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You have only supplied a picture, so we can't analyse it or even see if it happens to anyone else, but it looks like a font problem to me.
What font does it say that it is, and does changing the font make any difference?

Changing the font fixed it.  Any idea what caused this and how to keep it from happening"?  When e-mail this document to my customer, I don't want to have to tell him that he has to change the font in order to read it.

Perhaps the specified font is not on your system, and Word's best guess was wrong.
