Some caution...

On Windows, multiple versions is relatively easy, since each new version 
gets its own directory.

On Linux, if you do a standard install (ie, binaries) you will replace 
at best, and more likely mess up your prior installation. The way to get 
around this in Linux is to compile at least one of the versions, so you 
can place it in a nonstandard location.

Getting back to your problem -

This unusual appearance of I's and l's sounds like what happens when 
fonts are not embedded.
