Pages two and three of the PDF do not show this problem.  Comparing pages one and three of the .sla I see that the right-hand text frames have the same width and the same x pos, so I don't know why only page one shows this problem.

Hi Matt,

Looking at your PDF, I can see that these punctuation marks are there, but they're indistinct. You might try tweaking the width of the frame just a bit on that page to see if they become more visible/darker with a very slightly wider frame.
