When I browse to the document locally using Mozilla everything looks
great, to be complete I tar'ed the dir up and sent it over to our

bunch of question marks all over the place, and little black boxes.
Even viewing the source you can see the problem.
Source viewed when document loaded locally:
<title>Chapter 4. Adding Users
<td width="40%" align="right"> <a accesskey="n"
Source viewed when document viewd over apache server:

What does the "Page Info" tell you about the document? For instance,
when I browse a local file it is seen as ISO-8859-1 encoding, text/html
MIME type. Is that what you see from the Apache-served file? If not, the
httpd.conf file might be the place to start. The version of Apache you
are running might be an issue.
I am out on a limb here since I don't run Web servers for a living. But,
if in looking at the actual source of the file (I mean at a shell, using
od or xxd, rather than post-Mozilla), you see that the file clearly
contains spaces (0x20 ASCII), and not some other wackiness, the server
is obviously to blame. (Well, it *seems* obvious to me, but someone more
informed may have a different, and probably better, take on this.)
