I dont know how it works on the iPhone but in Windows and Linux they have standard fonts, and a substitute list of fonts for when the OS tries to display a file that contains a font not present on the system.  

It sounds like the IOS doesn't know what to do with the font and may be displaying the text using the 1st or last font in its list of fonts.

Our Admin Manager reformatted our business paper with a fancy font she had on her computer at home grrr.  The very 1st week we sent it out to the 120 odd recipients she was the only one who could read it.  On further investigation the font came with a drawing program and you had to have it installed to be able to view that font style.

... oh wow according to an email I just received I've won the $150 million powerball in the US - never had a ticket but, that's it I quit and am retiring for ever.....

My suggestion was it was font related, and you rightly point out that the solution was implemented by yourself, however I feel the points should still be awarded.
